We all experience times when we feel overwhelmed by the challenges and demands of life. When this happens, we naturally use our tried and tested coping mechanisms to deal with the situation. We may even try some new ways of dealing with things. Often, we will find something that works for us and life can return to a normal, balanced state. Sometimes, the demands are just too much and we need a little help. Counselling and therapy consist of a mutual creative process using your existing resources and abilities to solve your current problems and life demands.
