How can counselling help?
Counselling can help with a wide range of issues and provides a confidential and non-judgmental space to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Being self-aware and having the capability to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding is important.
Counselling allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings in a safe, confidential space.
What happens when I book an appointment?
Due to Covid-19 all of our sessions are currently online (Zoom) or via telephone, you will be able to book an appointment with a Counsellor on our team, and then attend regular sessions to explore and work through your issues.
We will match you with a Counsellor depending on your presenting issues and availability. We offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments so that all clients can access the service.
In the majority of cases, a single session will not be enough to overcome any issues you are facing. Counselling is a journey and it takes time and consistency to work effectively.
We offer unlimited access to our service so you can work with your Counsellor for an unlimited time to be discussed and decided with your Counsellor throughout the therapy process.
What can I expect from Counselling?
When you make an initial appointment you may be feeling anxious about your first session. Making the decision to reach out for help and support to work through the issues you are facing is an important first step.
Counselling can be difficult as you discuss and process difficult thoughts, emotions, and painful memories.
Talking with your Counsellor can be difficult to start with, and you may feel worse, but the process is necessary and in time you should start to feel better.
To get the most from your Counselling it is important that the sessions are consistent. Counselling is not a quick-fix and requires a strong relationship to be developed between you and your Counsellor, alongside the commitment you give this will provide the opportunity for change, for things to be different for you, for a better future.
What are the benefits of Counselling?
Counselling can help you to understand yourself better and the way in which you think, which will help you to develop a clearer understanding of your problems. It can help you to navigate your way through the difficulties you are facing, whilst feeling completely supported.
Counselling can also help you to have a better understanding of other people and their perceptions, which can then help you to understand how you react or interpret word or actions and the impact that this can have on you.
