An old proverb says

"A problem shared is a problem halved", but most times people allow their secrets to keep them sick. Finding someone to talk to is not always easy and there are many reasons for this.

Without encouragement, change is not always easy. Within a counselling session people have a safe place to share what is concerning them, learn how to trust again, receive encouragement and work collaboratively with the counsellor to identify a way they find appropriate for them to move forward.

Some of the benefits of counselling include:

Lessening of anxiety and depression symptoms

Lessening of addictions symptoms

Greater self-confidence

Better relationships
