There are times in life when you have a crisis and will 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 and abuse, and as a result you may feel depressed, anxious, angry, difficult to establish or maintain intimate relationships, moody, empty, or a lack of reality. Counselling can help you overcome these negative feelings, and help you get on with your life.
Counselling can also help you overcome issues such as self worth and self esteem, by helping you to change the way you view your life and your world. Furthermore, it can often help you get a deeper understanding of why things are occurring in your life, and find the best steps to take to bring about your desired change.
By consulting a professional who is unbiased and empathetic can be very useful in finding ways to overcome problems and to change. It can also help by externalising what is troubling you, and put your concerns into perspective.
