We all experience some form of distress in our lives. It could be sadness, anger, loneliness, stress, grief, anxiety, depression or something that you can’t explain. It could be current or could have happened in the past, or you may not know when it happened. It could lead to feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope, it could be affecting the relationships around you both personally or professionally. There are many things that contribute to this distress and being aware of them can help to ease the connected emotions. Counselling can help you do this by providing a safe and confidential space to explore and reflect upon these feelings
