There are many reasons why counselling or therapy can be beneficial for an individual or couple throughout the course of life. This may include issues such as depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, anger, low self esteem and low self-worth, issues around sexuality or sexual problems, or maybe feeling isolated or challenged by life’s circumstances.
Experiences such as bereavement, redundancy, divorce, separation, infertility, illness or abuse may have an impact on how we see ourselves and may prevent us from enjoying life in the way we would like. Equally a desire to simply understand oneself better or an increased interest in the growth and development of oneís potential may all play a part in seeking counselling or therapy.
