Do You need psychotherapy or counselling?
Many people experience problems with how they think and feel at some point in their lives.
Life changing events like losing a job, an accident, the loss of a loved one, a traumatic incident or just moving house can lead to difficult feelings that can be hard to cope with.
Sometimes, there may be no event that has triggered how you are feeling – this is common too.
These experiences can lead to problems with our mental health. Problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, panicking, nervousness, isolation and not being to sleep make it difficult for us to cope with life’s daily demands.
If you live in Eastern Cheshire (Alderley Edge, Bollington, Chelford, Congleton, Disley, Handforth, Holmes Chapel, Knutsford, Macclesfield, Poynton and Wilmslow) and are over the age of 18, Talking Therapies is here to help you take control of your life and feel better.
