About Counselling

If you would like to get some idea of how counselling can work, try this simple experiment: look at the black and white image for a few moments.

What do you see? A vase or two faces, but not both at the same time?

This shows that there is more than one way to see our situation, and how we see affects how we feel.

In the safety of a counselling environment you should be able to talk about things that you need to talk about, in order to find out for yourself other ways of seeing that make that vital difference to you and change your life for the better.

Counselling really works and permanently too: you learn about yourself in a way that helps you overcome future troubles.

It does take a few sessions to get going but then you should begin to feel better.
