- Counselling and Mental Health
People often seek counselling help after a crisis or an event such as bereavement, or a trauma, or when they feel they have no-one else to turn to. In fact, therapy can be useful for most kinds of emotional problems, as well as for symptoms such as chronic headaches or tiredness, where there is no obvious physical cause. If you are concerned, for example, about relationship difficulties, stress or anxiety, feeling depressed or not coping you should consider seeing our counsellor, or our Mental Health Worker.
The counselling service is confidential and is available to all patients.
- Podiatry/Foot Health
