Is counselling right for me?

Every year, thousands of individuals and families seek assistance from a professional therapist, while many more are left untreated. Patients often ask, “Is counselling right for me?” There is no simple answer to that question.

We’ve come to understand that many people want help, but feel weak in asking for help, or they worry someone (friend, family, employer, etc.) will find out about their therapy. But, through experience, fears and opinions can often change.
