The aim of counselling is to enable people to work towards living their lives in a more positive and satisfying way. Our counsellors all work with the Person-Centred Approach and aim to offer each client deep acceptance, understanding and a commitment to being in a genuine relationship.
What Can Counselling Offer?
- Counselling can provide a safe, supportive relationship where feelings can be sensitively explored and shared.
- You will be supported in developing your own resources for coping.
- Our service is confidential.
- The first meeting is an opportunity for you to meet the counsellor and explore whether counselling is what you need at this particular time in your life.
- Sessions last about one hour and are usually at weekly intervals, but you might prefer a shorter or longer time between sessions.
Why come for counselling?
There are times in everyone’s life when we feel overwhelmed by circumstances or feelings. Counselling may help when:
- Facing a major crisis or loss.
- Experiencing stress at work or redundancy.
- Having difficulties with relationships.
- Experiencing conflict with a partner, children or parents.
- Living with domestic violence.
- Dealing with serious illness or disability.
- Coping with bereavement.
- Experiencing negative or painful feelings following accident or abuse.
- Feeling lonely, isolated, depressed or frightened.
Sometimes we can benefit from the privacy of talking to a counsellor who has the time to hear all of our story and can help us come to terms with how we feel.
Sharing these feelings can often help people towards a better understanding of themselves and a clearer view of their difficulties and how they may be faced.
Who are the counsellors?
All of our staff have undertaken Diploma Courses in Counselling which are recognised by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Our counsellors are all individual members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and practice in accordance with its Ethical Framework.
What will it cost?
The project aims to offer an affordable counselling service, but as a registered charity, we will ask you to contribute to the cost of each session. This will be discussed with your counsellor.
