Why Counselling in Leicester?

There are many different reasons why you might be exploring individual counselling.

People come to see a counsellor for a variety of reasons. You may be facing a life-changing event that has created shock or grief. You may be experiencing feelings of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, isolation. Perhaps you feel trapped or angry. You may already understand why these feelings are present or you may be looking for someone to help you understand why. There may be past events or traumas from your past that are preventing you from living in the present moment.

Perhaps you are experiencing difficulties in a significant relationship, that you are unable to manage in a healthy way. You may be struggling with a relationship but you would prefer to have 1:1 sessions or it may be that your partner/s are not ready to engage with counselling at this time. Perhaps the pain you are experiencing feels overwhelming.
