reasons people come to counselling
varies as people themselves. Many
clients encounter distressing or
stressful experiences and would
like to express their emotions in
a safe and confidential environment.
These might include present circumstances
of bereavement, separation, or other
major life transitions, or experiences
from the past, such as in childhood.
Others seek help in dealing with
specific psychological or behavioural
issues, such as compulsive thoughts
or difficulties relating to people.
Some people seek counselling to
help them explore a general feeling
that they are unable to cope such
as depression or phobia. Some would
like to explore who they are and
create a meaningful life. Many people
are attracted to counselling as
an opportunity to undertake personal
growth and development with a trained,
professional therapist and receive
guidance and support.
