Why do people come?
Some people come to explore and understand more about themselves, some to reflect on the goals, decisions or direction they want to take in life. Others come because something doesn't feel right, is worrying, or spoiling the ability to enjoy life.
Most often people want something about themselves or their lives to change.
Friends can offer practical advice, but they often do not know how to help you get to the core of your problem. Friends and family can even sometimes be a part of the problem.
