Often people come for therapy because they are experiencing difficulties and distress in their lives that they need help with. This can be the result of issues and life events that they find hard to come to terms with. Sometimes people feel stuck, sometimes there are feelings getting in the way of day to day life. It might be that you don't feel right, you’re not sure why and you want to understand why you feel as you do. Maybe you feel dissatisfied with your life and want to make some changes, moving forward.
