Why counselling?

Please note we are now back in our therapy rooms and offering face to face appointments again. We have all of our Covid19 safety procedures in place. We will of course continue to offer on line appointments for anyone that would prefer that. 

If you have clicked on our website then the chances are that you are currently struggling with something in your life, and you feel that counselling could possibly help you right now. Whether you are looking on here for yourself or for someone else, you will find plenty of information on our site about us, our way of working and also all the details you need about where and how the counselling takes place.

Counselling can really help people when they are having a difficult time, and need some support. It offers a confidential and safe space without judgement, with someone that will attentively listen and be there for you. It gives you the chance to take care of yourself and work openly through what you are feeling. It also enables you to look at what is really going on for you and can help to make sense of where they are. It can also help to challenge and change unhelpful patterns and behaviours, while enabling you to gain a deeper sense of who you are and from more intimate and fulfilling relationships.

Making the decision to start counselling is both daunting and frightening. People often feel nervous and don’t know what to expect. To give you an idea, we would book an assessment as an initial chance for us to meet and talk. This would last an hour, and it is an opportunity to ask questions and to get to know you more. You can also ask about anything that you are unsure about. If you feel comfortable and are happy to go ahead, then we would book you in for weekly therapy. Each week would be different depending on where you are at, and what you are coming for. We can discuss all of your needs in the assessment and put a treatment plan in place.  We have a great team and we are here to help.
