"On the outside, you look like you have it all together, but truth is, on the inside you're a mess. You feel like you're drowning under the weight of your problems and are desperate to get free. You've tried everything you can think of, but nothing has made a difference. Your worries and fears make you feel like you are missing out on life. You can't believe some of the choices you've made lately; you feel so much regret. You never imagined yourself seeing a therapist, but you know you need help."

"Feeling stuck? As the parent of a struggling child, you feel helpless as you watch them suffer. You could never have imagined a distressing event like this, could happen to your loved one. Your child has changed – they are withdrawn, teary or more anxious. Their emotions are out of control. Perhaps they become angry quickly – 0-60. Sometimes it’s hard to be around them. You’re concerned for their future – what happens if this continues or gets worse. You want to help, but are unsure of what to do. If any of these challenges sound like what you or your loved one are going through, please know that counselling can help. "
