At Catalyst we focus on all areas of counselling; people come to us in order to address emotional, personal, work or relationship problems. Our team will help you find the counselling most suited to your individual needs.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we offer affordable long- term or short- term psychodynamic counselling in a respectful and confidential environment:
Short-term counselling provides a focus on specific problems and behaviours that you would like to overcome
Long-term counselling provides a more in depth exploration of personality and the roots of distress
Your first appointment will be an assessment that can last up to 90 minutes so we can explore your issues and decide together how best to help you. We aim that you will begin counselling within 3 weeks of your assessment with a counsellor who best meets your needs.
Ongoing sessions take place weekly and last 50 minutes.
Training, qualifications & experience
Our professional and highly trained counsellors have a wide range of skills and experience and work to the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
