Under pressure at work, not sure where your life is going? Maybe you feel as if the same patterns seem to keep repeating and causing hurt in your personal life and relationships? Therapy could help.
Many people come to counselling and therapy to try to find out about making changes in their lives. Some come to therapy because of a crisis or specific problem they need to resolve or because of traumatic and painful experiences, such as abuse, bullying or bereavement, relationship break up.
Often people find through therapy that there are link between their past experiences and present difficulties. Therapy can help understand those links and how they might be affecting the way you feel now and your relationships.

“It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of felling — that really hollowed-out feeling. Depression is the most unpleasant thing I have ever experienced… Sad hurts, but it’s a healthy feeling. It is a necessary thing to feel. Depression is very different.”
- JK Rowling
