Issues & Experiences

Counselling can help with a wide range of issues and experiences, including emotional distress, mental ill health, life changes, traumatic events, physical health issues, addictions, and relationship difficulties with a partner, family members, friends or work colleagues; anything that is troubling you.

We are not here to diagnose you but to hear what your experience is like. We have listed some issues and experiences that we have worked with, simply for you to reflect on whether you identify with any of these.
