Why do people choose counselling?

People come to counselling for a variety of reasons, many of which they may not fully understand. When we are struggling with issues in our personal lives, when others hurt us or leave us, when we are alone or afraid we seem to be wired to seek others to support us. It is sometimes difficult to find a place to share a problem and in our disconnected society, so it can be helpful to seek counsel in a supportive professional setting.

The benefits of counselling.

The benefits of counselling are as varied as the clients who come. Each person has a unique story and unique needs to be met. Some of the benefits can include improved self esteem, confidence to gain employment, healing of grief issues, improvement in relationships, forgiveness, relief of clinical symptoms (such as depression and anxiety) and coping strategies for a variety of issues.
