It’s good to talk, and often sharing a problem can take the sting out of it. It can sometimes be difficult to discuss issues with family or friends where you need to weigh up issues that may touch them through mutual relationships. Your issues may be deeply personal and knowing that you want confidentiality without any judgement is sometimes easier with somebody outside your usual circle.
Qualified counsellors / psychotherapists have been trained to actively listen and adapt the many eclectic therapies available to suit your particular needs.
The stigma of attending counselling is hopefully a thing of the past, and it is becoming a healthy, acceptable option.
I felt at ease, and Helen really helped me to work through my issues. I would really recommend her.
