The Benefits of Counselling

Counselling may be particularly helpful to those who are experiencing: depression, stress and anxiety, and to particularly overcome continual re occurring and ongoing negative and unhelpful behaviours.

An individual experiencing anxiety may experience feelings of fear and dread and isolation to feelings of incapacitation, they may often present together and the physical manifestations can be overwhelming to the client, with symptoms including palpitations, hyperventilation, memory loss, muscle tension, headaches, dizziness, fatigue and insomnia. An assessment is often necessary to ensure the most appropriate intervention .

"Prior to entering counselling I was a sceptic. I thought it was for others but not for me. Through counselling I have been able to talk about my feelings and emotions, without prejudice. Talking of my fears and problems has helped me come to terms with my past. I have been able to make changes, and accept things I can not change. I no longer suffer from depression and my anxiety is practically 'Non existent'."
