A few things we’re Great at

COUNSELLING

Counselling involves a series of formal sessions where the therapist and the client talk about the client’s issues and feelings. Even short term therapy typically involves six to 12 sessions.

The sessions take place at a regular, agreed time and in a ‘safe’ private place where the client and therapist will not be overheard or interrupted.

Therapy may involve talking about life events, feelings, emotions, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. The therapist will listen, encourage and empathise, but will also challenge to help the client to see their issues more clearly or in a different way.

Counselling is not about giving advice or opinions, nor is it a friendly chat with a friend. The therapist helps the client to understand themselves better and find their own solutions to resolve or cope with their situation.

DEPRESSION

Everyone feels unhappy from time-to-time but depression is different.

Depression lasts for long periods of time and often interferes with your everyday life. It can also come on for no particular reason – sometimes even when, on paper, your life seems great.

Simple tasks can become more difficult to complete when you’re experiencing depression and negative thoughts can take over, making things seem impossible to change or overcome.   

How it can feel?

Most people associate depression with feeling sad but there are many other ways it can affect you. You may find you:

  • Have a lack of motivation;

  • Notice changes in your eating and/or sleeping patterns;

  • Have difficulty concentrating or remembering things;

  • Feel irritable and agitated;

  • Feel weepy or lonely;

  • Feel hopeless;

  • Lose interest in things you usually enjoy;

  • Think more negatively than usual.

Depression can sneak into your life and make you unhappy, exhausted, isolated and unable to function in everyday life. It makes you think that things will never get better, but with our support, they will. It’s a common problem and easily treated with the right help.

When to seek help?

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of depression and are finding it harder to cope with your day-to-day life, it may be time to seek help.

What support is available?

ANXIETY

We all experience anxiety at times, it’s a completely natural reaction to situations that make us feel vulnerable, scared, nervous or worried, such as exams or job interviews.

Sometimes though, these tense feelings can start to creep into your everyday life, making it difficult to do regular things like socialising or going to school or work. When anxiety gets to this point, it can be really overwhelming and can leave you feeling very down.

When to seek help?

If you’re experiencing any of the physical effects of anxiety or find it’s impacting your day-to-day life, you may benefit from some support from one of our teams.
