Our services comprise of Registered BACP integrative counsellors/psychotherapists and a supportive mental health specialist who don’t believe in ‘One size fits all’. Collectively we have over thirty years' experience helping people cope with and eventually overcome their mental health problems. Rather than struggle through difficult times on your own, don’t hesitate to call us. We provide the time, place, space, and pace for you to feel safe in a therapeutic environment. We will attempt to build our relationship on respect, openness, and trust, with a robust adherence to confidentiality.
Our first session is an attempt to build this therapeutic alliance as well as to discuss whether counselling will be right for you.
A Client Counselling experience: How counselling helped me?
"Counselling has enabled me to look at life differently and slowly develop my understanding about issues in my life relating to studies, work, home and family. It has allowed me to have space to explore my thoughts and feelings in area I have not been able to talk about before or may not have considered before. I am now starting to feel good about myself, more confident and have more belief in who I am as a person. I am able to use the sessions to work on developing certain areas in my life and take action rather than just worry. So far it has been a challenging yet eye-opening experience"
We are open to viewing everyone free of judgment and will take on board the perception they bring to the therapy. We offer Person Centred Therapy which provides an atmosphere of acceptance and respect so that you can have a deep understanding of your self and a good climate in which to achieve personal growth.
However, if during this therapeutic process you feel stuck, other interventions can be integrated such as CBT, psych-education and motivational interviewing. Whether it's through one or a combination of these processes, a way will be provided for you to see the light at the end of your journey. We strongly believe that everyone copes on a different level and as such we draw from a variety of skills, knowledge and experience to best suit your specific needs and provide the appropriate environment for building the therapeutic alliance by which you will progress towards recovery.
