Most of us experience worry or depression at some stage of life and need to come to terms with the associated pain, disappointment and confusion. Often this can be resolved without outside help. Sometimes, however, the difficulties persist, causing unhappiness at home, work or in our relationships with others. This may be because current issues are stirring up feelings from the past of which we are not consciously aware. It may also be that we simply need to learn some more effective tools for coping. Counseling can help us to understand and make sense of both our struggles and the ways out of them.

Some people may be uncomfortable asking for therapy, believing they should be able to manage alone. However, professional counseling or psychotherapy can be a real turning point and lead to greater confidence in dealing with the challenges of life.

Some of the areas that talking to a counselor can help with:

  • Depression linked to anxiety, loneliness, frustration, anger and low self esteem.
  • Stress or anxiety related to fear of failure, panic, PTSD, traumatic events
  • Relationship challenges such as difficulty in finding and sustaining relationships, separation, bereavement, betrayal, trust issues, insecurity
  • Physical, Sexual or Emotional Abuse; Bullying
  • Gender and Personal Development issues: Sexuality, Self Growth, Life Direction, Loss of Identity, social status, Life Stages
  • Addictions or abuse of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Eating Disorders
