Why Choose Therapy?

There are many reasons why people choose the support of a Counsellor or Psychotherapist.

For some, the support of a trained therapist offers confidence and understanding by someone with specialist skills.  For others, it can simply be the opportunity to work through a personal difficulty with someone who is trained, impartial and objective.

What are the Benefits of Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling & Psychotherapy benefit individuals, couples, families, groups and communities in a number of ways.


There may be emotional relief, greater insight, improved self-awareness, greater self-confidence, improved self-esteem, the developing of new or broader perspectives, mediation, cohesion, bringing order where there may have been chaos or confusion, developing peacefulness and creating a sense of safety. New skills can be developed, the improvement of physical symptoms can be achieved, new methods of coping can be developed and the ability to let go of past events can relieve distress.


The ability to focus on the present, rather than on things we may fear about the future, can be empowering and often helps to reduce anxiety.  Developing improved communication skills can lead to more harmonious relationships and often helps to prevent conflict.  Learning to overcome compulsive thoughts and behaviours can restore a sense of control and order to life.  Developing methods for coping with heightened emotions helps to restore balance to life and helps to make emotions feel more managable.  These are just some of the benefits of therapy.
