Counselling

Counselling is about helping you to think things through for yourself to find your own answers. It is not always an easy process, as it may mean talking about things you feel uncomfortable about. But it can also be a relief to air these feelings, thoughts and ideas with someone who listens, does not judge and respects your confidentiality.

Talking with a counsellor may help you to become clearer about yourself and your life.

Weds 15th May - Samantha Barnett
Margaret counselled me in the last weeks of my husband's life and in the weeks that followed his death. The service was offered free and was literally life saving at a time when I was reeling with grief whilst trying to support our three young children. Life does not stop when you are struggling or grieving; you have to function and SECHC enabled me to do so enough to keep my children's world turning and to keep me vaguely sane. I will never ever forget the words that Margaret spoke to me, the way she normalised my children's behaviour and calmed my panic and despair. I recommend this charitable service wherever and whenever I can. Thank you.
