Adult clients are classified as individuals over the age of 18. As adults we can feel pressure coping with the stresses of everyday living. At times, such pressures may seem overwhelming and can have a negative impact on our mental wellbeing and level of functioning. Pressures may relate to work, family life, relationships, financial worries, children and family breakdown, amongst other potential causes. Counselling can support the individual to work through such issues and gain new insights and acquire coping skills.
