Often difficulties in living arise – such as relationship problems, depression, anxiety, unproductive behaviours, loss of meaning, low self esteem, work pressures, negative feelings – which lead to increasing patterns of distress. Taking time out for engaging in counselling is good self-care.

Counselling provides a safe, non-judgmental space and relationship in which to enable you to develop an understanding of yourself and to make changes in your life.

The structure of the therapeutic relationship can allow you to explore and unravel unproductive patterns of feeling, thinking and behaving and to discover new meanings and action in the world.

As therapy progresses and old habits fall away new experiences of well being such as self-confidence, emotional balance, vitality and connection to others can develop in their place.

The process of counselling allows growth and development to arise in ways which may not have been possible in the past or may not be possible in present circumstances.


True compassion does not come from wanting to help out those less fortunate than ourselves but from realizing our kinship with all beings.
Pema Chodron
