People attend counselling and psychotherapy sessions for many reasons. Perhaps you are dealing with grief or the breakdown of a relationship. Maybe you recognise the need to break unhealthy patterns of behaviour, or you feel angry or upset all the time and are unable to understand the reasoning behind these feelings. You may not even understand the emotions you are experiencing, it could just be that you feel unhappy, anxious or dissatisfied and want to make a change.
HOW CAN COUNSELLING OR PSYCHOTHERAPY HELP ME?
Our aim is to help you identify the issues that are affecting your life in a negative way, and work with you to resolve these problems. Often our clients feel a great weight is lifted from their shoulders once the roots of a problem have been identified and we can work together to resolve any negative emotions or behaviour."
"We run groups of up to 10 people where you can learn new strategies and start to understand the deeper rooted reasons which may be stopping you make long term desired changes. These groups can also help you to realise you are rarely alone in experiencing difficulties with making change that has been a major part of your life for a long time. They offer the opportunity to learn about and have some gentle therapeutic input to increase your awareness so you can choose how to start resolving the issue and make change. We offer groups that consider eating issues, chronic fatigue, parenting, personal and professional development.
We are open to offering other groups, so please ask if you are experiencing difficulty with something you feel others may value learning from too because if we have appropriate knowledge, resolution may not be that far away. Some ideas we are considering are self-esteem, anxiety and anger management groups.
