We would like to initially offer you a free thirty minute session to understand your difficulties so we can ensure you are going to be working with the counsellor or therapist who best meets your need. There is no commitment to continue if you think counselling may not be right for you.
If you decide to go ahead with a counsellor, sessions last fifty minutes and cost £45 for adults and £40 for those under eighteen.
Thinking about choosing a counsellor or therapist can in itself seem daunting when you are already facing difficulties however, if you wish, we can guide you towards the professional who may be most experienced to meet your need. It is important you feel comfortable with your counsellor or therapist so you can be supported in a trusting relationship and therefore, you may prefer to make this choice yourself when you have visited our website and seen the individual pages for our professionals.
Our team of counsellors and therapists are as individual as the clients they see; some not only use talking therapies but also work creatively using sand trays, objects or art materials. Others draw on mindfulness techniques and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). You can be assured your counsellor or therapist will support you in making choices which are right for you.
Our team also includes:-
- A Macmillan counsellor working with adults and teenagers living with cancer or managing a terminal diagnosis. Her in-depth understanding can support clients through the often, isolating journey
- A registered adoption support counsellor who understands the complexities and effects of adoption for adoptees, adopters and birth parents
- Two counsellors working with young people who understand the difficulties with parental/peer relationships, exam stress and social media pressures
Our counselling suite is on the first floor so we offer an alternative venue at the Riverbank Medical Centre, Midhurst for those individuals with disabilities or mobility requirements. Please enquire when making contact so we can endeavour to meet your need.
