How Counselling helps

Counselling is known to help with many different kinds of problems.  Here are just a few of the many ways in which counselling can help:-
 
Anxiety and Depression:
 
At some point in our lives, many of us will be completely overwhelmed by anxiety and/or depression. Often we feel too embarrassed or ashamed to talk to our friends or family about how we're feeling and this leaves us feeling isolated and alone.  There is hope, however, as counselling provides you with a safe place where you can explore your feelings and discuss any underlying issues that may have led to your anxiety or depression.  While your GP may well prescribe medication to manage your symptoms, counselling is an extremely effective 'talking therapy' which has been proven to help resolve your difficulties in the longer term.
 
Bereavement:
 
Often when we're grieving, we try to protect those around us and don't want to burden our family or friends with how we're feeling, leading us to feel more and more isolated.  Counselling can provide support through some very difficult times.  It helps us to acknowledge our losses so that we can eventually move forward and reach a place where we can find acceptance.
 
Road Traffic Accidents:
 
Following the aftermath of a Road Traffic Accident, we may well suffer feelings of panic, anxiety and social withdrawal.  There is, however, an extensive body of research to suggest that many people benefit from talking about their accident.  Everyone is unique and feelings are highly individual, so being able to explore what the accident meant to you is an incredibly useful and important part of the recovery process.
