Counselling is about helping individuals work things out for themselves, making the decisions and choices you wish to in a confidential, caring and safe environment.
Sometimes we have problems that worry us, we don’t know how to face them or deal with them. Sometimes talking to friends or family is too difficult. Talking to a trained professional, someone who will listen, understand and not judge, can make the path to understanding ourselves easier and clearer.
Problems will vary from person to person, we are all individuals. We may have one or a combination of problems. Difficulties might include anxiety or depression, mood swings, panic attacks and phobias, obsessive compulsive behaviour, difficulties in social situations, stress management, bereavement, relationship problems, concerns and adjustments to health conditions
Our counsellor, Alessia, offers a free 20 minute telephone consultation so you have the opportunity to ask questions and gain more understanding of what counselling can do for you and she can ensure that she is able to provide what you are looking for from therapy. She can work on a one-to-one basis, or can work with couples or families, with the aim of working together to make life more positive and manageable. What is talked about within any counselling session is strictly private and confidential.
