Counselling in Hastings
Every once in a while we all reach a point where we need some help. Sometimes counselling can be a useful tool for providing that help, but a lot of people don’t understand exactly what a counsellor does.
Primarily what a counsellor is for is to listen to you. Talking to a counsellor can help you, through discussion, work out for yourself defined problem areas in your life and help you decide, on your own terms, what to do next.
How active counsellors are varies from person to person, some offer suggestions or ways to resolve problems, others simply give you space to talk.
There are no hard and fast rules about what you can discuss. Relationship or family difficulties, trouble at work, addiction, or seemingly vague issues such as depression, feelings of isolation or a lack of confidence are all fine to talk to your counsellor about.
How you talk about those issues is also entirely up to you. The primary thing is that it gives you space to talk without being afraid of being judged or criticised. It gives you a safe space. There are plenty of counsellors in Hastings who can talk you through whatever problems you have right now. If you don’t feel you can talk to anyone else, please, give it a try.
