As you can see from the statistics Mental Health issues are extremely common and some say are a natural response to living through difficult times that we all face from time to time. There is still a stigma attached to counselling in that people often see counsellors dealing with negative issues and problems associated with mental health which is often associated with weakness or sickness. Through counselling you may want to work through anxiety, depression, stress, anger, trauma, health problems, addiction and a plethora of other issues it is ultimately a positive step forward to leading a more fulfilled and satisfying life.

At Its Okay Counselling we have helped people from all walks of life and with a variety of issues. The cause of mental Health problems are as wide and varied as the people who experience them but counselling is seen as an effective means to work through many of these issues and life challenges. In other spheres of life asking for help is the norm. In business, coaches work throughout the UK to help clients build resilience and to develop careers and success. In Sport, many organisations (Cycling, Football, Golf, Snooker) employ sport psychologists in order to create the right mind-set for performance and to cope with pressure. It is the norm and at Its Okay Counselling we see Mental Health experiences as a natural consequence to the trails of life and living.

Call It's Okay Counselling today to put the vigour back in your life.
