Hi, I’m Rob and I’m a qualified and UKCP accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor from Nottingham, UK.
People from all different backgrounds and circumstances might choose counselling to help make sense of issues going on in their personal lives; it could be due to a very specific issue or it could be that you are generally struggling to cope from day to day.
Sometimes the support around us doesn't feel enough - even from those with the best intentions! - and it can help to get some confidential, unbiased support from a counsellor.
Whatever your issue is, if it causing you problems, stress, worry of panic, then nothing is unworthy of being listened to. There might even be things which seem incredibly embarrassing or socially unacceptable to talk about openly (even with those closest to us) - this is where counselling can really help to make sense of things in our own heads and start tackling some of that shame.
Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling, it may be one of the most best choices you could ever make.
