Do I need to see a counsellor?

Many people hesitate about seeing a counsellor – they may believe that their problems are too insignificant or they worry that talking won’t help and that they should be able to sort their problems out by themselves. Many people also quite naturally do not know what to expect from counselling and they hesitate to seek help for this reason. Yet the reality is that everyone experiences difficult periods at one time or another and a significant amount of people seek help from a counsellor or psychotherapist at some point in their lives.

This may have been triggered by a specific event such as a bereavement or job loss, or a series of events, or for some, it may seem as though life has suddenly caught up with them. For others, there is no apparent specific problem and yet suddenly they feel as though life lacks a purpose for them. In other instances, people may be struggling with ongoing issues relating to low self esteem, poor health, depression or anxiety where the root cause does not seem clear. 

Occasionally, a specialised agency may be better placed to help or at least to complement the work of the counsellor. If this appears to be the case, I would discuss this with you in our first meeting and help you evaluate whether you might like to contact these alternative sources.
