Counselling is for all sorts of people. It
can help if you are working class or middle class, old or
young, hetereosexual, gay or lesbian, black or white or from
an ethnic community.
Issues that clients bring to counselling include:
- Abusive experiences
- Addictive behaviours
- Relationship problems
- Eating disorders
- Self harm
- Chronic illness
- Work related issues and unemployment
People who have been sexually abused can find talking therapy
particularly helpful if it is offered at a time when they
are ready for it.
Most therapists will work with you while you are taking medication.
Some research has found that a combinatrion of drugs and therapy
works better than either on its own.
