BENEFITS OF COUNSELLING
Self-awareness changes everything
Developing self-awareness allows you to begin to make sense of things, bringing a clarity and understanding, putting you in a starting place to consider change.
You will begin to live more in the moment
If you have anxiety or depression, you might spend a good deal of time either worrying about the future or regretting the past. Counselling can help you live more mindfully in the present
You will become braver and less anxious
The world may have become a fearful and antagonising place. You might have good reasons or experiences that validate this world view. Counselling can support you in healing from these experiences, so they have less impact.
You will understand why you do things which don’t make sense
Maybe you overeat or self-harm or drink too much. Perhaps you wonder why you can’t just stop. Counselling provides a safe place to explore your fears about change.
You will begin to value yourself
Counselling can help you to recognise the value in showing yourself true consideration and empathy.

And know how it has influenced the person you are today.
