They’ll do this by; 

  • Getting to know your wishes and goals

What topics can I talk about? 

Counselling is a valuable service that enables you to work through a problem or issue with a trained professional.  

The biggest benefit of counselling is that it provides a safe space to discuss what is going on in your life without fear of judgement. These can include a range of topics such as:   

  • Grief and loss 
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression 
  • Relationship issues 
  • Addiction, such as alcohol, drugs or gambling 
  • Loneliness and isolation 
  • Work and career issues 
  • Abuse 
  • Trauma 
  • Self-esteem difficulties 
  • Coping with life challenges 

No issue is too big or small, and there are many ways a counsellor can support your concerns, personal treatment goals and improve wellbeing.
