Why would I need counselling?

"In our more fluid social networks we cannot always rely on our distress being noticed. We have to spell out our problems if we are to be helped".
(Tom Burns)


Counselling and psychotherapy services for the Marple, Stockport and nearby areas of the High Peak

Do you sometimes feel that the pressures of your everyday life (work, relationships, family, financial commitments and state of health) conspire with shadows of your past to make you feel anxious, frustrated, angry, helpless and bereft of hope for the future? If so, I believe that counselling would be of real benefit to you. Counselling provides an opportunity to explore feelings, values and purpose in a safe, confidential setting - it's always a good time to talk.

I'm Rory and, unlike all those other voices clamouring for your attention, as a counsellor I have no agenda and aim only to provide the encouragement and support you need to hear your own inner voice. Although you are ultimately the only person who can take steps to deal with your issues, the support and encouragement of a counsellor or psychotherapist such as myself can help you to find the insight and understanding as how best to cope with or overcome some of those problems.
