We support individuals, couples, young people and executives to live amazing lives.
Whether you are at a point of crisis and need help, or at a crossroads in life and need a fresh perspective, we are experienced in supporting people to create lasting change in every area of their lives.
Here are a few of the more common issues we have successfully helped people with: –
Addiction happens when you become dependent on something, often as a means to escape from other problems you are having or to mask unwanted emotions.
Addiction counselling can help you to address the causes of addiction and help provide you with ways to control and change your behaviour.
Transitioning to adulthood can be difficult for many young people with issues around:
- Weight and eating issues
- Personal and sexual identity
- Family problems
- Exam pressure
- Career choice
- Their future
Too often young people can withdraw and push people away and develop some coping strategies that in the long term may be unhelpful, such as drugs, alcohol, or self-harm.
Teen counselling provides a safe space for young people to talk in confidence.
Every one of us has been angry at some time in our lives. It’s a normal emotion but can quickly become uncontrollable and lead to violence and aggression. It then seriously affects you and the people around you.
Anger counselling can help you to identify the causes of your anger and help provide you with ways to control and change your behaviour.
Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. All of us will feel anxious from time to time especially at times of stress. When you regularly experience anxiety it affects your performance and ability to enjoy life.
Common physical signs of anxiety are:
- Inability to sleep
- Rapid heart beat
Anxiety counselling can help you to identify the causes of your anxiety and help provide you with ways to manage your behaviour.
As many as 60% of the adult population are unhappy in their work. For most that’s just how it is but for an ever increasing number that general dissatisfaction has turned into an angst that gets worse. We feel stuck and don’t know what to do. We wonder if we can change career but worry that it’s too late and don’t know what else could we do. We constantly worry if it will ever get any better.
Career counselling can help you quickly get right to the heart of the matter. Leading to greater self-awareness of what we want out of life and how to make it happen.
You don’t understand how you feel, or why you feel the way you do, and as such are struggling to communicate your feelings to those important to you. This is creating misunderstanding and frustration for you and others.
Communication counselling can help you to get back in touch with how you are feeling and help provide you with the ability to communicate your feelings to those around you.
Depression is very common. Symptoms can range from mild mood swings to suicidal thoughts. Depression affects how we think, eat, feel, sleep and function. It prevents us from living our life to the full. Depression is not a sign of weakness and symptoms can be present for many years.
Counselling for depression can help you to identify and deal with the the issues that are causing your depression.
Eating disorders are defined by an abnormal attitude to food. A person with an eating disorder may focus excessively on their weight and shape, leading them to make unhealthy choices about food with damaging results to their health.
Eating disorder counselling can help you to heal your relationship with food.
Grief and Loss
Losing someone or something we love can be very painful. We may experience anger, guilt or abandonment. Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s what we feel when something or someone is taken away.
Grief counselling can provide you with the support to get through this difficult period.
Pressures of life can deeply affect the quality of our relationships leading to stresses and strains which if not resolved may ultimately lead to breakup.
Whether you are in a new or long term relationship, relationship counselling can help you to decide what’s best for your relationship.
When we have low self-esteem we tend to see life negatively which often results in a sense of hopelessness. You might think everyone else is better than you or that you are worthless and find it hard to be assertive.
Self-esteem counselling can help you to explore the way you feel about yourself and support you to change how you see yourself and others.
A little stress can be a good thing, it motivates us to take decisive action and achieve our goals. Too much can put our health at risk and leave us struggling to cope. Often we then rely on stimulants to help us cope, which in turn negatively affects us physically, emotionally and mentally.
Stress counselling can support you in developing coping strategies for your day-to-day life.
Self-harm is a way of coping with painful feelings and difficult situations for which we don’t know how else to deal with them. It is often a secret act which in turn leads to increased guilt and shame.
Counselling for self-harm can support you to discover and deal with the feelings that are causing you to self-harm.
Sexual abuse can have long lasting psychological, emotional, and physical effects. These effects aren’t always easy to deal with, but with the right help and support they can be managed.
Counselling can help you manage these feelings and explore how to live life today
Sex Related Issues
Sex plays a major part of our lives, yet is something we often struggle with and find it difficult to talk about, particularly regarding libido, identity, performance and abuse.
Counselling can help you to explore your thoughts and feeling, reach or help you deal with decisions and explore your relationships.
Many life events can generate enough significant pain that lead to thoughts of suicide.
Counselling can support you to turn your negative thoughts and feelings and into positive ones.
