There are many reasons why people seek psychotherapy or counselling at some point in their lives. Here are a few examples:-

full room
  • A need for greater self-understanding & inner contentment

  • Symptoms of depression have become a serious concern

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Stress at work or home is affecting the quality of your life

  • Childhood emotional, physical or sexual abuse

  • Low self-esteem and a desire to live more confidently

  • Living with a distressing level of anxiety

  • Bereavement, loss or major change in circumstances

  • Enduring symptoms of post traumatic stress

  • A troubled & disturbing family history  

The therapeutic journey can be a wonderfully healing and rewarding experience. However, some of the time it is difficult & painful. It is important to take time to consider what you need and want from psychotherapy or counselling, and the type of therapy that would suit you best.
