John Lawless is a counsellor and mediator based just outside Dungarvan, Co. Waterford.
People come to counselling for a whole range of reasons. Very often it is because they are experiencing difficulties or distress in their lives. Sometimes people can be isolated but there are times when even if you have lots of support from family and friends you might feel it difficult, even impossible, to speak to them about how you are really feeling. At times like these it may be easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with a person who is independent of family or friends. Counsellors can provide this independence and are specially trained to listen to what you are really experiencing and to help you to get to a place where you want to be. Confidentiality underlies everything that goes on between you and your counsellor and this relationship of trust facilitates people to find their own inner strength and often new ways of looking at old problems.
