Counselling, also known as talking therapy, is a way to help you deal with difficulties in your life or emotional problems.
The aim is to always work with you towards achieving your goals, one step at a time and at a pace that suits you.
If you are considering getting help, counselling is a great tool! Did you know many people find counselling as, or more, effective than medication?
Taking that next step can feel daunting. Remember you ARE strong enough and have it within you to take that next step.

Sometimes it's easier to talk to a stranger than to relatives or friends.
Hi, I'm Alex. I'll be your counsellor.
I'm a professionally qualified integrative therapist. I'm a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I know that sometimes reaching out can be difficult, so I want to introduce myself to you, and give you an idea of what to expect in a therapy session.About YourTherapy

I thought it would be difficult to open up about my problems with my therapist, but it was actually easier to talk to her about anxiety and depression than my parents or friends. A therapist isn't going to judge you or avoid you because of what you tell them; it's their job to help you deal with these things.
I used to think therapy was ridiculous because one hour per week could not be enough to help, but it's way more than that. In my experience, each session ended with something to work on. Sometimes it was writing in a journal every night. Sometimes it was saying kind things to myself every day. Whatever it was, there was a clear task. It made me feel like I could be productive in between sessions.
No one ever told me how drastically therapy would change my life in the best ways. I never expected that after talking to a therapist about certain things I would be ready to open up about those things to other people in my life, as well. It's really strengthened my communication and, as a result, my relationships with the people most important to me.
