  • How do I know if I need clinical counselling?
    There are many reasons someone might seek clinical counselling. Some common issues include anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems, grief and loss, addiction, and life transitions. If you're experiencing any of these challenges, or if you're simply feeling overwhelmed and unsure how to cope, clinical counselling can be helpful.
