Why Counselling?

Do you feel stuck, perhaps in relationships or your job, and cannot see a way forward?  Are fears of making wrong decisions, failure or rejection holding you back making you feel frustrated, lonely and sad?  Maybe you aren’t sure what you want, you just know something is missing.  Or there seem to be so many obstacles in the way of your reaching your goals. You may feel lost and time is running out.

Do you find yourself asking:

  • Why do I keep on making bad choices?
  • Why do I keep on walking into relationships that hurt me?
  • What am I doing wrong?

Sometimes talking to friends or family can be difficult because you are worried about upsetting them or feeling a burden.  I offer a space where I will listen and accept you for you.  Together we will work to help you find your way forward and cope better with what is making you feel worried, overwhelmed and sad.

It can be really hard asking for help; I appreciate how uncomfortable and awkward it can feel.  Perhaps you are thinking:

  • I’ve got it good compared to everyone else and shouldn’t complain
  • I should be able to do this on my own
  • I don’t deserve it, other people have real problems

This is not unusual, and many people feel like this.  You are making the first steps already and I offer a free introductory phone call where I can answer any questions or concerns you have.
