A Counsellor will help you to improve communication, resolve a crisis and deal with negative behaviour patterns by listening and talking in confidence as you work through the problem. By learning new ways of approaching and dealing with problems and emotions you will be able to see your situation from a different perspective and achieve a more positive outcome.

Stress Counselling

Many years ago, when we were cavemen, we had to deal with threatening situations which caused us to release hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol which are designed to trigger the flight/fight reaction. Fight gives us a burst of energy as we fight for our lives and flight encourages us to escape from danger in order to protect ourselves.

If we cannot fight or flee then the stress hormones build up, affect our immune system and raise our blood pressure. This, in turn, can lead to anxiety and frustration, outbursts of anger towards others, periods of crying, low self esteem and wanting to hide away and avoid others.

Nowadays, however, we don’t often encounter such extreme situations but, all the same, our brains continue to react in this way when we are under pressure and if we are unable to cope we then feel stressed. After a while, of course, feelings of stress mount up until you find yourself feeling out of control and totally overwhelmed

Bereavement Counselling

Everyone reacts differently to the loss of someone dear to them. Some of us experience feelings of anger and intense pain whereas others appear unaffected or unemotional. A Counsellor will listen without interrupting giving you the time to talk, cry or even shout and, in so doing, will help you to sort out your feelings amongst all the chaos.
