counselling issues




Depression takes on many forms and it is not a term to feel ashamed or scared of. Feelings of depression can come in waves over a short period of time or you may have several months of feeling low and then start to feel better.
There are many causes of depression. sometimes it can be a past hurt or trauma letting you know it hasn't been dealt with.
Talking to a counsellor can help. Being able to speak freely and openly and having someone be with you in the darkness can help you find a way through.

Suicidal Thoughts

Many people experience suicidal thoughts whether these are a fleeting consideration or a well thought out plan. The pain and anguish you are feeling can be alleviated over time with help and support. We offer non-judgemental, non-directive and honest counselling sessions to help you find the strength to keep going.

Bereavement & Loss

Bereavement can affect people in different ways, it can be hard to cope with the loss of a loved one and it is not always easy to deal with the range of emotions that may follow the aftermath of a death. I am here to help and support you through your grief.

Low Self- Esteem

f you have low self-esteem or confidence, you may hide yourself away from social situations, stop trying new things, and avoid things you find challenging.
