The aim of counselling is to enable you to come to a better understanding of yourself and the situation you are in. Counselling is talking to someone outside of your situation on any issues that may be concerning you. It means that you can be heard and really listened to in a safe relationship where you can feel trust. It’s time out to talk about how you feel and helps you to look at things in a different way – maybe you can find some answers to your questions.

There doesn’t need to be any major problems. People want to talk to a counsellor for all sorts of reasons. It doesn’t matter how large or small your problem is, counselling can help you to gain control over issues that you may not feel happy with.
