There are times in life when you have a crisis and want to get some emotional support. This maybe due to the loss of a loved one, the breakdown of a marriage or any great disappointment. Although it is normal to feel anxious or depressed, it is not healthy if such feelings continue for an extended period of time. Sometimes you may experience discrimination, bullying or abuse, so as a result you may feel depressed, anxious, angry, and finding it difficult to establish or maintain intimate relationships. This can lead to moodiness, emptiness and feeling out of touch with reality. Counselling can help you overcome these negative feelings, so you can get on with your life.
Counselling can also help you overcome issues such as low self esteem, by helping you to change the way you view life and your world. Furthermore, it can often help you get a deeper understanding of why things are occurring and develop steps to bring about your desired change.
By consulting a professional who is unbiased and empathetic can be useful in finding ways to overcome problems that enable change. It can also help by externalising what is troubling you, and putting your concerns into perspective.
