"Deciding to come to counselling takes courage and this may be a big step for you. Difficult times, bereavement, abuse, trauma or abandonment can leave us with communication problems, depression, anger outbursts or panic attacks, burn out, self harm, addiction, eating disorders and other problems. Sometimes we do not even know what is wrong but we just know something is lacking. Times of crisis and uncertainty can be a turning point but some things must fall away to give space for new growth. What does this mean for you I wonder? What is underneath your difficulties, what is your soul calling for? "
