Sometimes difficult feelings can stand in the way of us living our lives as we wish to. Low mood, stress, anger, anxiety and depression can lead to us finding everything a struggle and our normal coping mechanisms are no longer sufficient to help us get through. Getting up in the morning, going to school, heading to work, interacting with friends and family may become too overwhelming and this is where counselling can help.
The value of talking therapies has become more recognised in recent years. The Mental Health Foundation states that talking through your thoughts and feelings can help you manage difficult times and work out what is really troubling you.
Counselling provides an opportunity to reflect on early experiences and significant events in your life, enabling you to explore how these shape your current thinking, feelings and behaviour.
