How can Counselling help?
There are often times in our lives when relationship and family situations can be a cause of great distress. Anxiety, depression, bereavement, health or money worries, divorce and separation, infidelity, parenting differences and low self-esteem are just some of the many issues that can impact us, our families and our relationships. Difficulty with communication is another extremely common area of confusion, misunderstanding and turmoil in our relationships.
Counselling provides a non-judgemental, safe and supportive space to explore and untangle whatever problems you may be experiencing to help you gain a deeper understanding and identify areas for change or enable you to make different choices moving forward. It can help you to improve the quality of communication in relationships and find clarity at a time when you might feel overwhelmed, lonely, confused, angry or stuck.
