    What is Counselling?

    Not knowing what counselling is or how it can help can seem frightening and put many people off asking for the support they really need.

    Some people are uncertain about counselling because they think:

    • Everything I say will be analysed
    • It’s an invasion of my privacy
    • It’s only for people worse off than I am
    • I’m not mad
    • I don’t need help I can manage
    • No one’s going to tell me what to do
    • I don’t want to talk about it
    • Some things you don’t talk about
    • I don’t want to be judged
    • I’m frightened of change

    Feelings like anxiety, depression, anger and grief  can become very intense and corrosive if you turn them inwards and try to bottle them up. It can affect not only your emotional and mental health but your lifestyle and your relationships with others.

    Recognising you need help is a positive sign.

    In counselling you can talk about the different areas of your life you find difficult, what you think and how you feel about it.

    A counsellor can help you explore those uncomfortable areas of your life in a safe and non judgmental environment, making them easier to understand and manage. You can develop more appropriate ways to address and manage.

    I have many years experience providing counselling in Belfast, supporting individuals, couples and groups.
