Who is counselling for?

People seek counselling for many different reasons.

You might be experiencing:

  • Stress or worry
  • Sadness or depression
  • Loneliness
  • Grief or bereavement
  • Difficulties at work or at home
  • Major life changes and crisis
  • A sense that there should be “more to life than this”
