How long will I come for?

Some clients feel a short number of sessions are adequate to help clarify, understand and cope with a difficult situation or a time of crisis or transition.

As no two people are the same, counselling is always a very unique and individual experience.

Stress anxiety and depression picture

Diagnosable depressive illnesses usually require medical investigation and it is always advisable in the first instance to talk with your GP. Many people understand the value of counselling support when they are feeling depressed, stressed and anxious. Feelings of depression usually, but not always, stem from a build up of stress and anxiety.

It's not the objective facts that determine whether an event is traumatic, but your subjective emotional experience of the event. The more frightened and helpless you feel, the more likely you are to be traumatised. read more ...
