Counselling can help

' If you’re going through a sad and upsetting time, talking therapies can help you deal with it.'

'Talking therapy can help people who find it difficult to keep their anger under control.'

'Couples therapy can save a relationship that’s in trouble or help you through separation and divorce. Ideally, a couple should go to counselling together, but if your partner refuses to join you, counselling can help you sort out lots of things on your own'

The above quotes are from the NHS choices website.

What is counselling?

For many people there comes a time in their lives when they feel the need to talk about issues and events which appear to be compromising their quality of life and therefore causing a degree of chaos, confusion or challenge.

 Sometimes the need for counselling arises out of a growing realisation that after a long period of time – maybe involving personal conflict and struggle – it is now appropriate to seek help. 

At other times a sudden unexpected event may challenge the equilibrium of daily living and extra support is needed. Confidential counselling offers the opportunity to explore life issues in a safe, secure setting and with an appropriately qualified counsellor. It affords the client (s) a professional, client centred service which is bound by nationally recognised and accepted legal and ethical principles. Counselling can be described as a process where one person enables another to share his/her personal life events in a safe, respectful relationship. 

The task of counselling is to give the client the opportunity to explore and understand his / her life as well as to discover choices in moving forward to a different and possibly better place in life – a “new normal”. 

This can take from 2 or 3 appointments to months or years of therapy sessions. 

Sessions last up to an hour and are payable directly into a bank account at the time of each session. 

If a client has financial constraints, it may be possible to offer a reduced hourly rate.
