Whatever is troubling you I will encourage you to tell me about it in a safe and nonjudgmental setting. You can share things that perhaps you donâ€™t want to talk to friends or family about. Together we will endeavour to fully explore and understand your feelings, reduce distress, and support you to move forward as you choose.
What is Counselling
Sometimes life can seem overwhelming and talking to a counsellor can help to get things into perspective. Counselling offers you a secure space to explore what is going on for you, with someone trained to listen carefully, with respect and really try to fully understand you and your feelings. Counselling is not about someone â€œtelling you what to do, giving advice, or simply granting your wishesâ€ but can be about supporting you to explore your feelings and concerns which may then make decision making clearer.
