When is counselling useful?
Sometimes we experience times in our lives when we feel the need to talk to someone other than any friends or family we might have. It can be useful to explore our difficulties with someone not involved in our life in the hope that we might then view whatever it is troubling us differently and come to some solution for ourselves.
You may for example have lost someone close to you, either by death or due to the end of a relationship, or be feeling depressed or stressed related to one or more things happening in your work or personal life.
You may feel you have no particular problems but simply be wondering where your life is going at the moment and wish to explore this.
Counselling/psychotherapy can offer you the opportunity to look at any of these things in a confidential space with someone who is neutral and objective in the hope that you will find your way forward, whether it takes a few sessions or longer.
