How can counselling or psychotherapy help?

The Benefits of Counselling & Psychotherapy

Counselling and Psychotherapy helps by creating a supportive setting which has at its heart the purpose of assisting you to work on your issues safely in a confidential setting. This then helps you to gain perspective on your issues and can support and empower you to live the life you want.

Therapy helps you to discover yourself and helps to support you through both periods of crisis and through long term issues. Counselling is good for everyone, young and old, in every walk of life. It is a relatively small, but smart investment in yourself.

We could write a long list of the huge range of issues that people resolve through therapy. Some of the more common one’s include:

  • Bereavement counselling
  • Improved emotional control (e.g. anger management)
  • Counselling for depression
  • Anxiety counselling
  • Abuse counselling
  • Anxiety counselling
  • Addiction counselling
  • Work and career counselling
  • Relationship counselling


At Reflexions Counselling and Psychotherapy our experience and training as counsellors and psychotherapists means that we are able to deal with the vast majority of the issues that clients bring and are able to refer to specialist colleagues in the unusual case that someone has a specific need that we cannot meet.
