Everyone experiences personal problems at some stage during their life.
Sometimes these problems are emotionally devastating, highly destructive and make us feel alone. Counselling can help identify the underlying patterns to these problems and empower you to make changes.
Counselling is a process of working out your personal, relationship or family problems with the help of a trained professional. A counsellor will help you identify and clarify the issues in your life and then explore options and offer guidance to help you to address your issues.
Counselling sessions are confidential. Anything you say to your counsellor will be kept private unless there are exceptional circumstances such as legal requirements to report abuse or suspected abuse.
All FMC counsellors are skilled and non-judgemental professionals.
How does counselling help?
Counselling helps you identify and work on your personal problems.
Talking to an experienced counsellor can help you:
- understand yourself and how you relate to others
- understand your relationships as they are now and how they change
- discover what you want from a relationship in the future
- find out what it takes to make your relationships work
- identify your feelings in a safe place
- manage strong emotions such as anger, grief and blame
- cope with difficult life circumstances
- create positive family experiences.
While counselling can help with problems such as anxiety and depression, counsellors are not medical doctors and cannot prescribe medication of any kind. Please talk to your GP about feelings of anxiety and depression.
