Counselling Issues 


Our counsellors can work with you to make sense of long-standing patterns of thinking and behaviour, increase your understanding, and confront destructive patterns, working towards beneficial change. Psychotherapy can work on building a fuller or more appropriate way of living, which better expresses us individually in relation to the world.


Many of the personal problems faced can arise in the context of our relationships and family background. Zest For Life offers sessions for couples, adolescents and families to help work through their difficulties and find more fulfilling ways of relating to each other.
