  • What is counselling and how can it help?
    Counselling is the space and time to think and talk about you and you alone. People find it helpful for different reasons. It can help you talk about something difficult that you’ve never shared before, explore parts of yourself and your relationships and help you make sense of them. Let out stress and teach you how to cope better. Just provide comfort that someone is there for you. Counselling isn’t about the counsellor giving you all the answers. It’s about them supporting you as you find your own solutions, and help build your confidence and self-esteem.
  • What can I talk about?
    You can talk about anything that is on your mind – counselling is a safe space for you to bring anything you feel you need to discuss or to help you process any difficulties you may be facing.
  • Is this a confidential service?
    Yes, what you say to your counsellor is confidential and we adhere to a code of conduct and policies regarding confidentiality. Information you provide will not be shared with a third party other than in exceptional circumstances such as safeguarding issues or if required by law.
  • Can I attend counselling fortnightly or whenever I need it?
    We are able to offer counselling on a weekly or fortnightly basis. We have found that counselling is most beneficial when accessed weekly. Regular sessions allow trust, openness and connection to develop which are fundamental ingredients to making counselling work. A session is normally 50 minutes long.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    Every client is different, but normally a minimum of 6 sessions is recommended, with a review at the end of that series.
  • When Can Counselling Help?
    When you feel depressed, anxious, nervous, panicked, bereaved, depresssed, angry, lonely, frustrated, stressed. Counsellors/psychotherapists can also support you to look at difficult relationship issues, addictions & obsessions. Counselling can also support clients to find a greater sense of personal well being as well as supporting clients to identify what triggers certain behaviours and enables them to identify ways in which they can manage/change these behaviours. It can also support clients to identify coping strategies in situations that they may find potentialy difficult for example, job interviews, meetings with the boss, getting into lifts, being in confined spaces etc., getting back behind the wheel of a car after an accident. We offer short term and long term counselling depending on what best suits your needs.
  • How soon can you see me ?
    This will depend on your availability; there is usually a longer waiting time for evening appointments than daytime. We aim to see new clients within one week of their initial contact with us wherever possible.
