It may feel like a big step to start counselling. Typically clients may be apprehensive of the unknown process of counselling and this is a normal concern. At times clients may feel that their problem is not big enough to warrant help. You do not need to have a major trauma or suffer from depression to start counselling. It can be something as simple as a nagging feeling that things are not right in your life; or perhaps you are engaging in unhealthy relationship patterns which you cannot make sense of. Anne will provide a supportive non-judgemental space in which to explore your current difficulties.
