"Tilehouse provide an excellent service. My counselling was a real lifeline and my life has changed so very much for the better."

When is counselling useful?
People come to counselling for all kinds of reasons. The kinds of things you might want to address might include:
- Anxiety and depression
- Self-esteem and confidence
- Drug, alcohol and food-related issues
- Abuse and neglect
- Self-harming and suicidal thoughts
- A traumatic experience like abuse, violence, or a significant change or loss.
- Health including sexual health
- Bereavement and loss
- Sexuality and gender identity
- Bullying, racism and sexism
- Work stress
What you tell your counsellor is confidential, and you can expect what you say to be treated with sensitivity, respect and discretion. However, in order to ensure the quality of counselling, all counsellors have regular consultative support in supervision. Identifying details of individual clients are witheld.
The only circumstances in which confidentiality would be broken is when a counsellor considers someone to be at risk of serious harm. Ideally, and in the vast majority of cases this is done with a client's full knowledge.
