COUNSELLING


Counselling is a chance to talk through your problems/anxieties and emotions with a trained counsellor/pschotherapist.  The counsellor /psychotherapist plays a supportive role, and may sometimes provide practical advice on problem solving..


TALKING

Talking to a complete stranger is easier, you can be honest with a stranger and you don't have to worry about what you say or how it sounds they will not judge you.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
