WHAT CAN COUNSELLING HELP WITH?
These are referred to as Common Mental Health Problems and represent a small sample of the issues that we can assist you with.
Stress and Anxiety
Believing we are under some form of attack, the body produces adrenalin in what is referred to as a ‘fight or flight’ response. At this point we can be jumpy, irritable, short of breath and trembling and our normal ability to think clearly and rationally is impaired.
Depression is a mental health disorder. It can affect the way you feel about yourself, the internal dialogue you have with yourself and the quality of your sleep. It can lead to social withdrawal and an almost vegetative state.
Loss and Bereavement
The loss of a loved one or a job and the end of a relationship or marriage can all end in feelings of loss and bereavement more commonly known as grief. It can lead to an emotional crisis that feels unbearable.
Relationships can be one of our biggest sources of happiness and also one of our biggest sources of stress and anxiety. Putting time and effort into relationships is an important life skill, so why do we sometimes fail to make relationships work?
