About Counselling

At some point in our lives we all experience challenges and difficulties that can be overwhelming. Stress over a job, anxiety caused by uncertainty over the future, the feeling of loss because of bereavement, problems with addiction, difficulties in a relationship, or the feeling of helplessness.

These are just some of the reasons why people choose to talk to a professional Counsellor or Psychotherapist. A trained counsellor or psychotherapist provides confidential and professional help by working with you and the difficulties you face.

What to expect from Counselling?

The short answer is that you can expect to talk to a trained professional about the issues that are affecting you. Each person is affected by the world around them in a different way and a counsellor is trained to appreciate that individuality. In helping to deal with issues and problems in your life counselling can be a rewarding experience, full of personal growth and understanding.

Counselling & Psychotherapy?

Counselling and Psychotherapy are activities involving a counsellor / psychotherapist who offers a professional service as a helper, and a client who seeks the service. The term "client" may include individuals, couples or groups of people.

The therapist offers an impartial relationship in which the client can explore specific issues and develop more satisfying and resourceful ways of living. Confidentiality is recognised as a vital basis for such a relationship.

The therapist respects the client's values, personal resources and capacity for self-determination. Counselling and Psychotherapy are formal activities where both parties explicitly agree a contract about participation and procedure.

To ensure that their practice remains effective and appropriate, therapists are obliged to meet regularly with a supervisor, who is an experienced colleague with whom they review their work. Information discussed during supervision is regarded as confidential.
