Adult Counselling


Can't see see the wood for the trees? Counselling can help.At times we can all feel stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious. When feelings like these last for a long time or become difficult to manage, they can begin interfering with your well being, relationships and general enjoyment of life. This is where Counselling can help. Counselling tends to be relatively short term and to focus on current specific personal difficulties.


Psychotherapy is a longer process which helps people to understand the deeper roots of their present difficulties with a view to developing a greater understanding and being better able to manage in life.

Both Counselling & Psychotherapy can help with issues such as:

  • Anxiety or stress
  • Depression
  • Emotional or behavioural issues
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Abuse
  • Bereavement or Loss
  • Relationship issues
  • Unhelpful patterns of behaviour
  • Difficulties relating to childhood or the past
  • Unforseen or unwelcome changes in life

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

At times we can all feel stressed, overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious. When such feelings are being fuelled by negative thoughts and beliefs, CBT can help. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a proactive, practical and soltion-focussed approach to personal problems. Both the client and therapist work together towards understanding problems in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviour. The more actively involved the client is in this goal-orientated process, the better the outcome. CBT is often action-orientated, with specific technique-driven, brief, direct and time-limited exercises for specific psychological disorders. CBT can help with issues like:

  • Addressing specific fears or phobias
  • Obsessive thoughts and behaviours
  • Managing Stress
  • Anxiety and social anxiety
  • Managing depression
  • Setting & Achieving objectives
