Who can benefit?



As the ultimate aim of counselling is to promote greater personal fulfilment and provide the tools for creating more positive life experiences, anyone wanting to improve their quality of life will benefit from counselling.

People may seek counselling for a variety of reasons. For example, they may be dealing with

one or more of the following:

  • Anxiety (including phobias and panic attacks)
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Relationship issues (marriage, family, work...)
  • Health issues or disability (e.g. vision loss)
  • Pain management issues
  • Addiction issues (e.g. drug, alcohol)
  • Eating disorders
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, abuse)
  • Anger management difficulties
  • Communication problems
  • Cultural adjustment issues.

If you are experiencing difficulty in any of these areas, counselling can provide the opportunity for positive change and a restored sense of peace and direction in your life.

Why Counselling?


We all experience times in our lives when certain challenges seem overwhelming or difficult to work through. Our usual coping skills and techniques  may be challenged by new, lingering or extreme circumstances, and frustration, anxiety and uncertainty about ourselves or a situation may leave us feeling 'stuck' or overwhelmed.

At these times, talking to a caring and experienced Counsellor can help us gain greater understanding of the issues we are facing and help us to approach them in a new and constructive way.

By increasing insight into our patterns of thinking and their effect on our feelings and behaviour, it is possible to understand how negative patterns may contribute to problems in our lives and in our ability to cope.

Counselling enables us to use this new insight to 'reframe' past or present issues and develop more constructive thinking patterns, allowing us to regain control over our thoughts, feelings and actions, and strengthening our ability to navigate effectively through life's challenges.
