What is Counselling?

Counselling is about understanding how you feel and why.

You may feel unhappy or that something is wrong but you can’t seem to work it out on your own.

Your counsellor will work with you on finding your own solutions. Your counsellor is specially trained to help you uncover things you need to understand.
