Counselling and Psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. These therapies can help people to cope with and make sense of many of life’s problems; such as the fallout from traumatic events, the impact of depression and anxiety, and the behaviours that we may display as a result of them.  They can also support you to make sense of the impact that other people’s behaviour or way of being, may be having upon you.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can be a great way to explore how you are feeling and the impact of events on your life. However, you do not need to be in crisis before reaching out for support. In fact, accessing Counselling or Psychotherapy before reaching crisis point can support you in setting boundaries to help keep you emotionally safe and feeling in control of your life.

It is not the role of Counselling and Psychotherapy to offer you explicit advice on how to live your life, or to try and fix things for you; but rather to listen to you and help you understand your situation more clearly so that you can see the changes that would serve you better in life, and to help you build the resilience to make changes on your own terms.
