Counselling is a process that helps you to explore your feelings and thoughts about a situation or experience in your life, assisting you to deal with your problem in the here and now. Counselling cannot solve all your problems and will not have all the answers. Our Counsellor’s will help you to focus on what is troubling you and help you to see the issues involved more clearly in a confidential and supportive atmosphere. This insight can often enable you to make important choices in your life and by helping you work through those difficult issues that we all often face either at work or in our personal lives, will improve your quality of life and well being. By having someone you can trust to tell your troubles to can often be a great relief, as sometimes it can be difficult to talk to those close to us about the difficulties we are experiencing. It can, therefore, be a great help to have someone impartial to offer the space and support to explore our feelings and resolve these issues. In a recent BACP survey, it was found that 95% of people think it is a good idea to seek counselling for problems, before they get out of hand. The number of counselling sessions required can vary from one to twelve, depending upon what is concerning you.

By gaining insight into your thoughts and feelings, you then become better equipped to make conscious choices, creating a more satisfying life for yourself and it works because a trusting relationship is built up between the client and the psychotherapist.
