What is Counselling?
Counselling offers you the chance to be heard and to talk with someone about what has happened to you and how it is affecting you. You will not be judged or told what to do. You will be supported in being yourself, in making your own choices and supported to make changes in your life if that is what you want.
The relationship you build with your Counsellor is often an important part of the process, offering you a safe, respectful and non-judgemental space to speak openly about the issues you are facing. You will not be forced to talk about anything you don’t wish to, however feelings and memories can be stirred up, which can be hard; your Counsellor will help you work through this to help you become more able to manage your feelings about the past, and feel more confident to carry on with your life.
