Perhaps you have been thinking about having counselling for a while.  Some days you feel really low and feel like you need to speak to someone as soon as possible.  Then the next day you feel OK and the thought of ringing a counsellor goes away.  But the issues that made you feel low are still there and you inevitably feel worse again in a few days time.

Counselling is about having a safe place where you can explore your feelings and emotions express your issues, concerns and fears in a confidential and non-judgemental space.  Frequently it involves discovering, accepting and growing to love the inner person within you.

Maybe you’ve talked to friends or family about what’s going on for you, and you feel they don’t get it or are too close to the situation or could possibly be part of the problem. 

Sometimes it’s really good to talk with someone outside the situation.
