Counsellors

Counselling can be arranged by self referring or a referral from one of the clinical staff. Counselling can be helpful in dealing with issues like:

  • Bereavement and loss,
  • Relationship and personal problems,
  • Family Problems;
  • Work and unemployment issues;
  • Stress;
  • Anxiety and Depression;
  • Emotional Problems. 

Counselling is not about giving advice. It is intended to help people become more aware of their own resources, find options, and make choices that are right for them.
