Counselling can be helpful for all sorts of things that may be worrying you and some of the most common are listed here. This is not a 'list' of things that you can talk about but examples of some reasons people work with a counsellor.
There is more information below on some things mentioned and if you would like any further information on anything please feel free to get in touch and ask questions.
Feeling generally unhappy
As a human being you may be on a search for happiness and might feel you deserve it or perhaps not, depending on the experiences you have had in life. You are bombarded with information promising to tell you ‘The Key to Happiness’ or ‘If you do these ten things you will be Happy’ which I think is another way of ensuring you feel a failure when you are not feeling it!! Feelings are not the same for everyone and so there isn’t a secret way of achieving anything

Panic Attacks and Anxiety, Obsession and Compulsions
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is extremely effective for high levels of anxiety, panic attacks and obsessions such as constant checking, cleaning or tidying. Also helpful for compulsions such as gambling, alcohol addiction and food addiction.
These things together with phobias such as agraphobia respond well to this type of counselling and I have worked successfully with many people who go on to lead life in a more fulfilling way..
These things together with any number of similar problems are very common and a large number of people suffer for many years unnecessarily.
I will also teach you skills to ensure that you can go forward knowing that you are able to cope should the same feeling resurface.
