What issues can Counselling and Psychotherapy help with?
There are many reasons why people benefit from counselling and psychotherapy and all reasons are valid.
It is important not to minimise your issues because other people don’t understand them, or, you believe that other people have issues worse then your own.
Examples of issues that counselling and psychotherapy can help with are experiencing: abuse, low self esteem, bereavement, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, sexuality issues, relationship problems and illness to name but a few.
How many Sessions will I need?
The number of sessions needed is unique to each client and will depend on your goals, how you use your time between sessions and how much support you have out-with therapy.
Even with limited time or finances, realistic goals can still be achieved.
Your confidentiality is taken very seriously and will only be broken in extreme circumstances. For more information see our client agreement.
