Can counselling help you?

There are times for everyone when life becomes unbalanced. Each day seems harder to cope with and the joy of life slowly disappears. If you are feeling like this right now, or are just uncertain about events that are happening in your life then counselling can be of help.

At any one time in the UK about 1 in 6 people experience mental health issues or emotional distress. Some mask their discomfort and find ways to compensate until they recover. For others the symptoms become too severe or last a very long time and become increasingly overwhelming. Unable to get any respite or to reach a satisfactory resolution they can feel very alone.

If you recognise your situation here, then you may find that just sharing the unsettling aspects of your life with someone outside of your normal circle of family and friends will be a relief. More than this, seeking help from a professional counsellor – someone who is trained to listen – can provide a path for you through what seem huge life obstacles. Committing to counselling can be the important first step you are looking for to restore more balance and harmony to your world.
