Counselling Benefits

Counselling provides a safe, warm and welcoming environment for you to talk about any concerns you might have in your life. It provides a confidential and non-judgmental space to help you to understand and cope with your problems more easily. Counselling can help you unpack those areas of concern, make sense of your feelings and bring insight and clarity into your situation. Often a new perspective or a new way of thinking or being can be the catalyst to change. 


Counselling is a process that can help you;


  • Feel supported, heard and listened to
  • Reduce your stress, tension and anxiety 
  • Increase your self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Talk about your experiences and express what is on your mind in a safe, supportive place 
  • Heal from past experiences and wounds
  • Learn coping strategies and techniques to reduce panic and fear
  • Make sense of your feelings, thoughts and behaviours
  • See new perspectives and develop a new way of thinking and being
  • Develop a self-help toolbox that can assist you in your daily life


Counselling is not only about helping you emotionally but providing you with the necessary tools and counselling strategies to help you in your everyday life. For example, a counsellor might teach you;


  • Grounding techniques for when you feel disconnected or numb
  • Breathing techniques to help alleviate panic attacks and anxiety
  • Relaxation techniques to help reduce physical or emotional tension
  • Coping strategies for when you feel emotionally overwhelmed 


A counsellor can also provide you with;


  • Tasks to complete between sessions where you can practice applying your new skills
  • External resources for support, e.g. crisis line phone numbers, online support, referrals
