Our clients hail from different walks of life , social groups, classes, jobs and ethnic backgrounds. The one true thing that can be said about mental illness is that it does not discriminate in any way, shape or form. Whether problems have been brought on in recent years or are rooted in the past, we just do not know when they will appear and start to affect our lives.
The way we are feeling can leave us with anxiety or drive us to addictions or eating disorders, leave us with low self-esteem or lacking in confidence. What triggers this can vary from loss or bereavement, separation or divorce, the failure of a relationship or sexual abuse. The causes maybe a little more easier to define in cases of post natal depression, gender issues, or fertility problems. Our teenage clients can of course have been subjected to any amount of abuse or just need someone to talk to and listen.
Psychotherapy and Counselling at The Orchard Counselling Practice provides expert assistance, identifying problems and finding coping methods best suited to the situation. Confidential consultations in a relaxed environment helps steer our clients towards the healing process and back on the road to good mental health.
