Why should I/we seek counselling?
Counselling can help you face, understand and resolve issues that are affecting you and possibly holding you back in your approach to life. It may be associated with relationships at work, life changes, communication difficulties, conflict, depression, self-defeating behaviour - to name but a few! In some cases, the issues may relate to your past, like difficulties in your childhood, or the death or illness of someone close to you.
Mostly, I am asked to assist with relationship difficulties in both heterosexual and same sex partnerships. In a lasting relationship people face many important changes. Sometimes couples can't talk to each other about these problems. Meeting with a counsellor can be a way to open up effective communication once again.
In some cases, you may be ending a marriage or long-term relationship and need help in dealing with the issues surrounding this and gaining new direction in your life.
