Counselling and psychotherapy offer an opportunity to deepen awareness of yourself and your relationships, by offering a safe space where you can explore your concerns and clarify your choices with another person. You can gain insight into who you are, how you relate to others and to life in general.
Help can be offered for a wide range of issues, including:
- Lack of self-esteem or self-confidence
- Grief and bereavement
- Relationship concerns
- Eating disorders
- Feelings of meaningless
- Personal development
Psychotherapy and counselling are not about giving advice but, through careful listening to what you have to say, a therapist can often bring to your attention assumptions and feelings that are influencing your thinking and behaviour without your being aware of it. Recognising these can empower you to make your own decisions in a way that makes life more fulfilling for you.
