Individual counselling and therapy can be a vital resource for working through difficulties you face in your life. It offers a unique opportunity to talk about what is troubling you with a trained professional in complete privacy.
You may want help with a particular problem or you may wish to embark on a more open-ended inner journey of self-exploration and discovery. Whether you are feeling stuck or lacking direction in life, therapy can provide a sense of relief and also rediscovery of inner resources, including greater capacities for relationships with significant others (a partner but also a parent, child, friend or colleague).
It is not uncommon for individuals to come for therapy due to relationship difficulties. You may be single and feeling unsure about relationships. Perhaps past disappointments or present fears of rejection make you anxious about future commitments. Or you may be in a relationship but feeling disconnected from your partner, perhaps fearing that you have grown apart, that you are the only one putting any work into your relationship.
Issues commonly brought to therapy include:
* relationship troubles
* recurring conflict
* lack of intimacy
* life transitions
