Counselling is "talking therapy". You can talk in confidence, without being judged, to someone who is trained to help and is not part of your everyday life. It gives you time to explore your thoughts and feelings about whatever is troubling you.
Counselling can help with a wide range of problems - from general feelings of dissatisfaction with life, to major life crises. These might include depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement and other losses, family and relationship difficulties, problems at work, or worries about illness.
People often visit the doctor with physical symptoms caused by these kinds of stresses. Your doctor may feel that referring you to the counsellor might be more helpful than just giving you medication.
You will be given an appointment as soon as possible after seeing the doctor. If there is a significant waiting list your counsellor will let you know straight away.
As this is an adult service, the counsellor will usually see people over 18, but 16-18 year olds may be given appointments in certain circumstances.
Practice counsellors are qualified professionals employed by the Gwent Healthcare Trust as part of the Psychology Service.
