Issues we help with

CBT Counselling’s overall focus is to help people manage, and ultimately to overcome, mental health challenges that they’re suffering.

The issues we help with are wide ranging, but not everyone who seeks out therapy will have a diagnosable mental health condition. For example, many people seek counselling to help them make sense of the behaviours of others, most often to better understand their relationship with them.

Similarly, sometimes clients just want to weigh up options or declutter their thoughts or to develop strategies to make positive changes in their lives. Sometimes a client just needs to know whether their feelings are out of the ordinary or not; for example, they may be confusing feelings of serendipity with their self-diagnosed depression. Such a self-diagnosis is usually quite unhelpful.

Of course, the decision to see a counsellor / psychotherapist is a very personal one. Indeed, therapy will involve looking closely at yourself, your situation and the people around you. For most people, this can be very daunting at first, but the rewards can be immeasurable. Thus, having a trained professional work with you throughout this process is an invaluable asset.
