What is counselling

Counselling is a process by which people of all ages are helped to gain fresh insight, to have a different perspective and to find motivation.
Over a series of one-to- one sessions in a confidential and supportive setting,counselling can help you make changes in life.

Counselling facilitates the sharing of thoughts and feelings. It aids the process of empowering people to discover their own answers, and to feel more in control of their own life and relationships

 

How can counselling help

Counselling can be a great relief and source of strength in:

 Sharing difficulties in confidence with a trained and skilled counsellor.
 Having the time, opportunity and space to explore different ways of looking at the problem.
 Gaining insight and, in time, a clearer perspective, which may resolve or reduce difficulties and frustrations.
 Developing self-awareness

 

Why do people need counselling

There are times in our lives when many of us feel unable to cope. For example, maybe we are:

 Anxious or depressed?
 Stressed at work?
 Carrying responsibilities too great to bear?
 Suffering grief or loss?
 Feeling inadequate or lacking in confidence?
 Living with change?

 

Session details

Following initial discussion, the number of sessions are tailored to meet each individual's need. Typically each CBT session runs for forty five minutes. Some people find that a few sessions are sufficient, others continue for a prolonged length of time.
