Our in-house counsellor is trained to listen sympathetically and can help people deal with any negative thoughts and feelings that they have.
As well as counselling, there are a number of other types of talking therapies. For example, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy that can be used to retrain a person’s way of thinking to help them cope with stressful situations.
For example, counselling may be helpful in treating:
- obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- long-term illnesses
- eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia
- substance abuse
- a loss or bereavement
- a miscarriage/pregnancy loss
- a change in personal circumstance or relationship
- a life adjustment such as having children
- your children leaving home, the so called ’empty nest syndrome’
- poor health
- Or you may be trying to resolve other issues that seem too difficult to tackle alone.
