Is Counselling Right For Me?

Taking the step to seek counselling is not always simple. 

You may be wondering if counselling/psychotherapy could provide you with the guidance and healing you've been seeking.


Do any of these sound familiar to you?

  • I often feel unhappy and dissatisfied about how my life is going, and I'm not sure how to make changes.  
  • I feel anxious or depressed much of the time. 
  • I feel emotional pain, and I don't know where it's coming from or what to do about it. 
  • My life feels overwhelming, chaotic, and out of control!
  • I feel tension and conflict in a relationship in my life, and I don't know how to make it better. 
  • I have experienced a significant loss in my life and am struggling to get through this grief.   
  • I often have disturbing dreams or nightmares that leave me feeling uneasy or troubled for days. 
  • I have had something traumatic happen to me and I continue to relive it. 
  • People often tell me I'm too sensitive or overly emotional, insisting that I just "grow thick skin". Is something wrong with me? 
  • I have intrusive and disturbing thoughts that just won't go away. Although I do my best to stop them, they just keep coming into my head, and I'm ashamed to tell anyone about them. 
  • I find myself doing repetitive behaviours to bring down my anxious feelings. These seem to help for a bit, but then the uncomfortable feelings come back even stronger!
  • I often doubt decisions that I make or have trouble making decisions in my life, whether small or significant ones. How can I learn to trust my inner "knowing" or "intuition"? 
  • I feel like something is missing in my life and long for deep, meaningful connections.

If you can relate to one or more of these statements, counselling may be of benefit to you.
