What is Counselling & Psychotherapy?

Counselling & psychotherapy both come under the heading of ‘talking therapies’, and involve the therapist listening to your ‘story’ to help you make important discoveries about yourself and your past. They provide a safe place for you to explore various aspects of your life and feelings in a private and confidential setting.

Counselling & psychotherapy is a way of reducing confusion and can facilitate change. It does not seek to remove your independence. Both therapies offer a caring, confidential, and non-judgemental interchange which is aimed at encouraging you to find insight and personal balance.

Counselling & psychotherapy can offer a new perspective on your difficulties and help you to see issues more clearly. During therapy you are encouraged to become empowered, and you are free to choose your own pace at which to progress. On your first visit, a full assessment of your needs will be taken, looking both at your current situation and past history, to decide which therapy would suit you best. Sessions take place on a regular basis and difficulties can be explored either in short-term or long-term work.

What issues can be brought to a therapeutic session: It often helps simply to share a problem or difficulty. Therefore, any area that you wish to bring to a session can be explored, such as:

  • Depression
  • Drug and alcohol concerns
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Stress/anxiety
  • Abuse
  • Confusion
  • Low self-esteem
  • Eating distress
  • Personal growth
  • Loneliness
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Trauma
  • Anger
  • Personalities disorder
