Counselling/therapy is not a sign that you are 'failing' or 'weak' in any way. On the contrary in fact, it can be hard work and is in no way an 'easy option'. By visiting this site, you have already probably recognised an area of your life where you feel you would like more insight and understanding, or perhaps areas where you would like to develop personally.
I do not make false promises. Many websites of this nature advertise 'quick fixes' but unfortunately, lasting change is not that easy and advertisements that say otherwise are rarely effective. Counselling/therapy is an investment not just financially but also emotionally and this type of investment can be both challenging and rewarding. It has the potential to be life changing, not only for you but for those around you. Indeed as a result, you may find that not only can you resolve current or past issues, but you can also deal with new challenges more effectively as well as gaining a higher sense of self-awareness, leading you to live a more fulfilling life.

Counselling/therapy is confidential, led at your pace and will be re-assessed at regular intervals to ensure that you are getting what you need. Appointments are usually on a weekly basis and the number of sessions you will need will depend on you and what you bring. Some people require several sessions, whereas some require substantially longer, depending on the nature of the problem. You are never obliged to stay in therapy for longer than you feel you want to.
