It’s normal to experience emotional difficulties at some stage of life which can impact on our relationships, work and leisure activities. There are times when our inner resources or the support of those close to us cannot provide the resolution or alleviate the distress we are feeling. It is at these times we may seek support elsewhere and explore counselling as an option.
There has been a significant increase in the number of people accessing counselling and psychotherapy. Recent surveys report that it is increasingly considered an ordinary, everyday activity to improve or maintain mental wellbeing.
