What is Counselling?
Counselling is talking to someone about your thoughts and feelings to help you feel clearer about the things that are affecting you. You may want to make changes in your life and need help to think options through; you may be feeling "stuck" with a situation or problem; or find that you are not coping well with your feelings, moods or behaviour. If these sorts of challenges are causing problems with your course or your enjoyment of life at college and beyond, the Counsellors are here to help.
It is quite normal to go through times of being worried or anxious, or finding studies and social life difficult to balance, or struggling to cope with major changes in life. Often when feeling unhappy, upset or confused many people get support from friends and family. Sometimes however this support can have its limitations. Friends and family may be too close, may be coping with their own issues, or may even be part of the problem.
The Counsellor will listen to you and work with you to find your own solutions without judging you or telling you what to do.
