Many people are attracted to counselling as an opportunity to undertake positive personal development in a safe and supportive environment: you don’t need to have ‘a problem’ to find counselling useful.

What is counselling?

Counselling helps and supports people who are suffering from feelings of unhappiness, sadness and distress. These negative feelings may come and go, they may be constant and they may become serious.

There is no clear distinction between counselling and psychotherapy; both are talking therapies that allow people to explore their feelings and emotions and the effect they have on their lives.

Why you might be considering counselling

Clients have many different reasons for coming to counselling or psychotherapy. Often, clients encounter distressing or stressful experiences or situations which they’d like to talk about in a safe setting.

Distressing or stressful experiences might include present circumstances of bereavement or separation. It might include major life transitions or experiences from the past, from childhood for example.

Some people seek therapy to help them deal with specific psychological or behavioural traits which they would like to alter, such as compulsive thoughts or difficulties relating to other people.

What can you expect from a session?

Our approach to counselling is what is known as ‘client centred’ therapy. This differs from behavioural and psychodynamic approaches by focusing on current, subjective, issues rather than an unconscious cause. We are not going to excavate your past but rather focus on what is blocking, or troubling you, in the present.

Occasionally, issues will be more complex than they first appear, so various therapies may become useful. These will be integrated into your current programme if we think it will be beneficial for you. This is called integrative counselling.

Our accredited therapists work remotely and face-to-face.
