What is counselling?

Counselling is a ‘talking therapy’.  It helps many people with a wide range of problems through periods of distress or difficulty.

Is counselling going to help me?

Counselling can help:

  • You find your own answers
  • You feel better about yourself

Will I have to wait?

This depends on what time/day of the week you are available. There is sometimes a short wait for evening sessions as these are in greater demand.
