 What happens in Counselling? 

Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable. 

It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views. They won’t usually give advice, but will help you find your own insights into and understanding of your problems.  

Counselling can help you:  

  • Cope with a bereavement or relationship breakdown  
  • Cope with redundancy or work-related stress  
  • Explore issues such as sexual identity  
  • Deal with issues preventing you achieving your ambitions  
  • Deal with feelings of depression or sadness, and have a more positive outlook on life  
  • Deal with feelings of anxiety, helping you worry less about things
  • Understand yourself and your problems better
