Counselling gives people the chance to talk to a trained professional in a safe and totally confidential environment, to explore feelings, thoughts, and behaviour.  Counselling has been shown to help people cope with everyday problems, distressing experiences, major life events, experiences from childhood, and difficulties relating to people.  It is also commonly used as a key tool in helping to treat depression, anxiety, substance dependence and most other mental illnesses.

The aim of counselling is to relieve distress, improve coping ability, raise awareness and understanding of oneself and other people, and give an increased sense of wellbeing.  At its best, counselling can help:

  • Put life situations in perspective
  • Help find practical solutions and approaches to challenges
  • Give a new sense of confidence in making choices
  • Deal more effectively with other people
