Often when we are in despair, the people closest to us are the ones we find it the hardest to talk to – perhaps because we don’t want to worry them, or to appear weak.  We may fear that discussing our difficulties with family and friends will cause upset or argument, and that our issues will not be heard properly or fully understood.

There are many problems that can be helped through the counselling process.  The following is not a definitive list, but gives some examples of the many issues that can be explored:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Marriage Guidance & Relationship issues

  • Bereavement

  • Teenage/Adolescent issues (bullying, self-harming, exam stress)

  • Family issues

  • Work related problems (bullying, low self-esteem, being undermined)

  • Health issues

  • Anger Management

  • Sexuality – LGBT related issues

When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better
