What is counselling?

 

Counselling is a talking therapy in a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings from the past or present day in a supportive professional environment.

Your reasons for coming to counselling:

 

There are many different reasons why people make the decision to see a counsellor/psychotherapist such as:

 

  • Feeling low or depressed

 

  • Relationship difficulties intimate and/or professional

 

  • Work related issues such as stress and performance anxiety

 

  • Feeling like anxiety is preventing you living the life you want to live

 

  • Addictions such as alcohol, work or sex

 

  • Intrusive and unpleasant thoughts or compulsive patterns of behaviour

  • Beareavement issues and loss

 

  • Unresolved childhood issues that are impacting on your life today

  • Managing difficult feelings such as anger

 

  • Difficulties with making decisions creating inner turmoil, making you feel stuck or frustrated or disempowerered

What to expect from counselling:

​​

  • Sessions will always last for 50 minutes

  • The first session will clarify whether we think/feel we can work together

  • All work is confidential unless this is legally not possible (for example court orders, child protection issues and risk of harm to self and others).

  • Therapy can be short term or long term and you can also take a break and return to therapy at a later time
