Why might I need counselling or CBT therapy?

Stress, anxiety and low mood are remarkably common difficulties and can really affect people, in many different ways. You might be noticing some of these signs in your everyday life:

  • Worrying lots
  • Lack of motivation
  • Not enjoying things you used to love
  • Intrusive thoughts that scare you
  • Panic attacks
  • Sleep problems
  • Low self-esteem/confidence

If you recognise these signs, it might be time to seek some counselling or support. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) could be the right type of therapy for you. CBT is a talking therapy that has tons of research as being one of the most effective treatments for anxiety, low mood and stress.
