Women have very important and increasingly demanding roles to fulfil within modern society and modern families. At the same time, women are constantly bombarded with messages about how they are supposed to act and look. There are many pressures faced by women, and it is not always easy to talk about those pressures or other feelings, emotions and experiences with friends and family.
Women of all ages and from all backgrounds use counselling services for a variety of reasons. Some women come to counseling for personal development. Other women come to counselling to explore a variety of issues, concerns and experiences from their past and present experiences.
Women often comment about how different it feels to speak to a counsellor than to friends and family.
A support network of friends and family is vital for our wellbeing. However, the relationship between client and counsellor is unique in that it is not influenced by other shared experiences or common friendships/kinship ties. This is a caring, confidential and non-judgmental relationship that exists exclusively between client and counselor to address whatever issues or needs the client brings to counselling. Your counsellor will bring experience and strategies to work with you through these issues and concerns.
At Counselling and Wellbeing Scotland, we recognise the distinctive physical, social, emotional and psychological circumstances and pressures facing women of all ages as daughters, sisters, friends, mothers, partners, wives, students, professionals, grandmothers and carers. We also know that every individual has a unique experience. We invite you to meet with one of our professional counsellors to
work through your specific concerns and explore your personal needs and aspirations.
