Counselling

Counselling is carried out in a confidential environment. Here you speak freely and openly in a non judgmental environment. As the client you have the opportunity to explore issues and difficulties effecting you in your life. By working through them you help come to an understanding or resolution in your own mind. The counsellor is there to support and facilitate you in finding your own answers to your problems and situations. The counsellor is trained in helping you see things more clearly and to help you place meanings to thoughts and feelings.

There are different types of counsellors. These differences are the different techniques they use to help you explore your issues. For this reason choosing a counsellor can be a very personal thing and it may take time before you find one that you can open up freely with. If you are not gertting anything form your sessions with a counsellor or feel uncomfortable with them, find a different one.

Counselling is for everyone, including, children. It can be carried out individually, as a couple, family and in groups. There are many different types of Counselling and some specialise in specific areas, such as, drugs, self harm, bereavement, sexual problems, stress and anxiety. When seeking a counsellor you need to consider your situation and choose them accordingly.
