In the world today, many are struggling with a lack of connection with themselves, God and others; a sense of loneliness, feeling lost and hopeless, with no-one to talk to. Linda Rowett from Hope Counselling says that people carry issues silently, feeling they may burden others by talking about them. It often takes a step of bravery to reach out to get the help that is required. While life may feel overwhelming there are people who can help through empathic listening, spending time and connecting with you.
Hope Counselling is a new counselling service to Roscommon and Athlone. Issues such as rejection, depression or adult survivors of child abuse are just a few of the areas they have understanding in. Graeme Wylie, director, has been taking doctors’ referrals and counselling in Lecarrow and Longford part-time over the past two years and felt the need to develop the service to Roscommon.
The qualified staff offer a confidential service, on an appointment basis, at an affordable cost to young adults and upwards. Contact details are available on their website www.hopecounselling.ie or text (085 ) 1140983 for an appointment.
