What is Counselling?
Counselling is a ‘talking therapy’, or in other words a conversation between a counsellor and a client. You and your counsellor will meet face to face, usually once a week, for 50 minutes, to work through issues which are causing you concern. We are in the fortunate position to be able to offer short-term and open-ended counselling to meet your needs.
How Counselling can help
There are times in our lives when there seems to be no way to overcome distressing events or overwhelming feelings – when our lives have become difficult or even intolerable. At such times of intense anxiety we are liable to make hasty decisions which we later regret, or accept advice from others with which we may not be in wholehearted agreement, and then have to live with the consequences. Counselling aims to help people clarify their own thoughts and reach their own decisions, and perhaps to make major changes in their life.
Whatever your situation, whether you are worried, depressed, confused, feeling bad about yourself, coping with an unexpected change or crisis, or simply wanting to make some changes in your life, it is helpful to talk things over with an understanding and well-trained “outsider”.
The first meeting with a counsellor is used to discuss whether continued counselling will meet your needs. It is important to give the counsellor an honest account of your situation, and also to be prepared to ask questions so that you can be sure that counselling is what you want, and that the counsellor is a person that you can work with comfortably.
The time with your counsellor is confidential and information will not be passed to anyone without your consent. All of our counsellors work within the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Among other things, this ensures that the counselling process is confidential. Copies of the Ethical Framework are available on request.
We actively oppose oppression and discrimination against people because of their gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, disabilities, sexual orientation, age, religious beliefs, class, HIV status, or because they have been in contact with mental health services.
