HOD - Eating disorders

Eating disorders can really take over people’s lives and identities, and often they find themselves consumed with issues around food, body size, shape and obsessive thoughts begin around these areas.  Eating disorders range from binge eating to restricting, and they can often include abuse of laxatives, vomiting and exercise.  Eating disorders are not just about food and exercise though, and they have a lot to do with relationships, experiences, history and confidence.  Counselling can help people to practically change the way that they eat and exercise, and help to challenge destructive patterns.  But it can also help people to develop and improve all other areas of their lives.

HOD - Depression

Living with depression can be a very painful and distressing place to be.  Depression can take over and leave people feeling both physically and emotionally drained.  People often feel very alone and isolated, and as though no one fully understands what they are going through.  Counselling helps to provide people with a space where they are heard and supported through a very dark and painful time.  It also helps people to gradually re build and gradually put their lives back together.

HOD - bereavement

Whether a bereavement is sudden or expected, it is highly distressing and traumatic.  People feel under great stress and strain when someone they love dies, and no matter what the circumstances, grief can include a wide range of emotions from sadness to anger.  Loss can also be the loss of a relationship after a marriage breaks down for example, or the loss of an animal, a home, a job etc.  It is not only bereavement that can leave people feeling empty and alone.  Counselling can really help people as they go through the stages of grief and ensure that they have the support that they need as they work through all the different emotions involved.

HOD - Anger management

Anger management counselling is about teaching people that anger can be expressed in a healthy way and that it is possible to be angry without being destructive.  Counselling helps people to get more in touch with their feelings and to express them, rather then bottling them up and exploding in an aggressive and negative manner.  Counselling helps to address the issues that are underneath the explosions.  It is supportive and caring, but it also helps people to make practical changes.
