Common Issues

People seek counselling for a variety of reasons and often because someone close to them, perhaps a family member, friend or doctor, has suggested that they need to gain help. Others seek counselling because they have identified specific goals or issues that they wish to work on. Having emotional or mental health issues is no different to having a physical ailment, and in that respect, seeking support without delay will aid a faster recovery. As with physical issues, the longer emotional and mental health issues are left, the more complex the difficulties can become.

At Glister, we can promote self-actualization, empower self-growth, improve relationships, and reduce emotional stress. We will work with you collaboratively on whatever is most distressing or important to you. Together, we will decide upon your goals for therapy and we will aid you in achieving your goals.
