Counselling Service
Location:
Central Service
Description:
Counselling offers time and space to talk through personal issues in a safe accepting environment with a person who has no other role in your life. People who seek counselling often come because they feel overwhelmed by feelings of depression, sadness, anger, confusion, panic, anxiety or fear. They may be finding it hard to sort out their feelings, thoughts or circumstances. Counselling can help with issues that include understanding yourself; relationships and sexuality; getting relief through sharing a problem; becoming clearer about a problem; stress-related difficulties; bereavement and other kinds of losses; noticing and changing patterns of behaviour; coming to terms with the past; low self-esteem; self-harm; obsessive-compulsive disorder. Counsellors tend not to give advice. They are there to listen without judging you, to help you explore whatever issues you have and identify the changes you wish to make, and to help you make the decisions you choose.
