Understanding can make a big difference

Perhaps you find life overwhelming at times, feel demoralized and lonely, and anxious about what the future holds for you. You may find yourself feeling resentful towards others, angry about your life, or envious of other people’s lives, but you have no idea of why, and how it came to be like this. You have the feeling that things could be much better, but do not know how to make this happen. Counselling provides the opportunity to reflect on yourself and your life, and look at how the past may influence you in the here and now, and help you make sense of the difficulties you are experiencing.

Counsellors do not give advice, or tell you what to do, but instead they help you gain insight into what is troubling you. At Centre 70 counselling service in West Norwood we do this by listening to what you have to say, and by helping you understand why you feel or behave a certain way. Understanding the reason why you feel distressed often brings a sense of relief, and is the first step towards achieving changes in your perception, awareness, and relationships.
