From time to time the modern world, and how we live our lives in it, can give rise to feelings such as stress, anger, sadness, anxiety, confusion or even loneliness. These feelings could affect you at any time and sometimes they can become overwhelming. At such times, seeing a professional counsellor who can help you to explore, understand and move past these feelings can help to restore your health and wellbeing.
People are often reluctant to seek counselling because they misinterpret an inability to cope with overwhelming feelings on their own as a weakness or believe that counselling will mark them out as some kind of ‘failure’. This is not the case. Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore, in a comfortable and confidential environment, your feelings with a trained professional. You will be listened to and helped to understand why you are feeling the way you feel. Often, just the act of talking openly with an impartial counsellor and reflecting on aspects of your life that may be causing you concern can provide solutions.
