We all struggle at times with difficult situations and strong feelings. Problems in life can leave us feeling distressed, trapped, defeated and sometimes hopeless. We aim to offer you a safe place to talk about the things that concern you and to help you restore the hope that things can change.


  • Together we explore your current concerns in a supportive, non-judgemental environment.
  • We support you as you consider alternative perspectives and make informed choices.
  • We work together at a pace you can manage and move towards a healthy understanding of who you really are.

Counselling can help with many problems, including:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Loss and grief
  • Depression or low mood
  • Abuse in its various forms
  • Family problems
  • Anger, resentment and bitterness
  • Trauma
  • Spiritual struggles
  • Anxiety / panic / phobias
  • Guilt / Shame
  • Hurt
  • Addictions / obsessions
  • Loneliness
  • Self-esteem / confidence issues
  • Stress / work related problems
  • Financial issues
  • Sexual issues / pornography
  • Communication problems


My counsellor was fabulous.  She was such a calm, amazing person who works wonders and I love her style of counselling and her approach.  She was always flexible when needed and accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Oaks to anyone I know who thinks they need counselling.
