What is Counselling?
Counselling provides you with a confidential and safe space to explore and talk about a situation or circumstances you may be facing. It is some time and space set aside for you, giving you an opportunity to explore and share your thoughts and feelings, at your own pace, on your own terms.

Talking to a counsellor can help you work through difficult and challenging circumstances or experiences, and bring about lasting change in your life.  Areas where counselling can help include:
  • Feeling overwhelmed or stressed
  • Struggling to cope
  • Feeling anxious or depressed
  • Overcoming Anger
  • Developing confidence and self-esteem
  • Improving relationships
  • Trauma and Abuse
  • Workplace or College issues
