During these challenging times it can be difficult to maintain our mental health and wellbeing when coping with so much uncertainty and turmoil at home and at work. It can feel overwhelming and you may wonder how you are going to look after yourself in the months ahead.
On our webpages you can find details about where you can get information, advice and support to help you with your mental wellbeing during the COVID-19 emergency.
Counselling is a process of learning to understand yourself and others by exploring your thoughts and feelings in a supportive and non judgemental space, enabling you to make a constructive change in your life whether in crisis or ongoing situation.
Modern living creates a multitute of strains and stresses on individuals and families alike. Though most of us can carry one or two problems at a time, sometimes things pile up.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
