What is counselling?

Counselling provides an opportunity to be yourself, talk freely about how you are feeling without being judged, at a regular time each week.

Your counsellor will help you make connections between the past and present and explore how you respond to current difficulties. She will not tell you what to do.

You might want to talk about:
-Difficulties you are experiencing in your life at the moment.
-How the past affects your thoughts, feelings and behaviours now.
