Why have counselling?

You do not necessarily have to be in distress to benefit from counselling. Many clients choose counselling as a support to consider life options and sometimes just a 'tune-up.'  On the other hand, for whatever reason, you may have reached a crisis point in an area of your life and benefit from a safe space to talk through what's happening. Counselling is impartial, non-judgemental and confidential. See 'FAQ' page for more information.
