Have you ever had these thoughts about therapy?
- Therapy doesn’t work.
- Therapy is not for me it’s for people with serious mental health issues.
- Talking to someone about my problems won’t help me.

Counselling is a guilt free environment – how often have you not wanted to burden others or not wanted to be judged and made to feel guilty about your feelings? Counselling simply requires you to turn up with an open mind and actually put yourself first for once, it gives you the opportunity to be heard like you may not be used to, taken seriously, understood, not judged and simply cared for – where else do you get the chance to be focused on so intently! Life can be difficult, we may put ourselves in those difficult situations or they may have been handed to us by others, either way, sometimes we just need to talk and that’s really what Counselling is, you have the freedom and choice to discuss what you want on your terms.
