Not knowing what counselling is or how it can help can be frightening and can put many people off asking for the support they need.
Feelings like anxiety, depression, anger, grief etc can become very intense if you turn them inwards and try to bottle them up.
In counselling you can talk about 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.
