Bullying is more common than you might first think and it’s not confined to the playground. Bullying can occur during all stages of life; at school, work, university, online and almost anywhere. People who have experienced bullying often find counselling helpful, whether that’s dealing with a current bullying incident or something that has happened earlier in life.

Bullying can result in a number of things including:

  • Low self-esteem

  • Depression

  • Self-harming

  • Suicidal thoughts

Speaking to a counsellor can help victims of bullying deal with incidents of bullying as well as looking at others behaviour. Often clients come to counselling for other reasons and the root cause of the behaviour is bullying. Counselling can help victims deal with the issues associated with bullying as well as dealing with the root cause.
