Counselling offers an opportunity to talk, to think, to reflect on issues that are affecting your life. It allows you the time to talk about feelings and problems in a safe and confidential place. Counselling allows you to talk about your concerns and your issues in a way that is often difficult even with close friends and family.

Sometimes life can become challenging and difficult and you need help unravelling your problems and making sense of things. You may have friends and family but no-one with whom you can truly confide your innermost thoughts.
