Community Counselling

Counselling within a community is a way of exploring feelings and overcoming emotional difficulties in a safe and confidential setting. A counsellor can help you realise that there may be choices in your life when you previously felt you had none. We are experienced at helping those who are faced with personal problems and who feel unable to cope alone.

Issues you could discuss within your community:

  • Living through family break-up
  • Feeling let down by people close to you
  • Discovering sexuality
  • Meeting other people's expectations
  • Not being able to find work or losing your job
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Health problems
  • Young People's issues
  • Life transition difficulties
  • Change of life
  • Retirement

Reaching out for support

In each of our lives there are times when we feel overwhelmed by life's difficulties and are unable to cope. Counselling is a way of exploring feelings and overcoming these emotional difficulties in a safe and confidential setting. Surprisingly, it's much easier to talk to someone you don't know - someone who is experienced in listening.

What support is available? Support is all around us - family, friends, work colleagues [the ones who are not abusing you!], witnesses to what is happening to you. Further afield, there are many support groups which are made up of people who have been abused and can share valuable information with you, as well as giving you the emotional support you need to know that what you are experiencing is not your fault - and they can give you some great tips on how to deal with things.
