LB Counselling provides safe, confidential support to help people cope and recover from life experiences that are causing them pain, which can be physical, emotional or spiritual in nature.
Emotional problems are experienced by everyone at some point in their lives. Family and relationship difficulties, bereavement or health worries can all severely affect our ability to cope and enjoy life at times.
Professional counselling helps people to develop new skills and insights to begin making life better.
