How can counselling help? There are times in all our lives when things get on top of us and we could do with some help. We will give you the time to talk about what is troubling you. By talking things through you can often get a clearer understanding of yourself and of the difficulties you are having. It is a way of taking more control of your life and beginning to change the things that you want.
Counsellors are specifically trained to listen and use their skills and experience to offer support and help in finding a way forward. Counsellors do not judge or criticise, nor do they offer advice. To find out more, download the leaflet:
