YMCA Counselling, Isle Of Wight
Isle Of Wight
YMCA Counselling Isle of Wight offers an affordable and confidential counselling service for adults and children who need to talk through concerns and difficulties. We offer a safe place where you won't be judged or told what to do, but we will help you to work out how to cope and explore possible solutions to your problems.
Training, qualifications & experience
At YMCA Counselling Isle of Wight we have a team of counsellors that work from a range of theoretical models including person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy. Regardless of the theoretical framework used by the counsellor the importance of the relationship between therapist and client has become widely acknowledged as a key factor in successful therapy.
Our services are provided by counsellors in training or by qualified and registered counsellors and therapists who belong to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) or the National Counselling Society (NCS).
