What is counselling?
Counselling allows you a safe place to be yourself and to say what you truly feel in confidence without fear of judgment, criticism or unwanted advice. A counsellor will not tell you how to solve your problems, but will help you find your own solutions.
When something is getting you down, counselling can help you gain a clearer understanding of your emotions and can help you to see your own strengths, resources and opportunities you may not have seen before.
There are many times in our lives when counselling may be helpful, including times when we are coping with major changes, times when we are dealing with losses, or times when our self-esteem and confidence is low.
What does counselling involve?
The frequency of sessions can be arranged to suit your needs but is usually weekly at the beginning. Counsellors prefer to see clients, on the same date and time where possible and each session lasts between 50 and 60 minutes unless longer sessions have been arranged.
Who can avail of the counselling service?
Counselling is available for children, adolescents and adults for a range of issues such as bullying, anxiety, depression, grieve, loss, separation, divorce, addiction, stress, low mood, low self-esteem/confidence and more.
