CHERISHED VOICES COUNSELLING SERVICES
We care - You matter and your voice will be heard.
WHAT TO EXPECT-
As a client you can expect to have support through the counselling process that will ensure you to be able to get the help you need and the support to find a solution that works well for you.
People may have heard of counselling, but don't actually know what it is. Counselling is a talking therapy delivered from trained counsellors who work with different clients over a short to long term period of time. To help the client bring about an effective change/solution that will help them in the situations they are facing. Counsellors do not provide advice to their clients, but a safe, confidential, private and undisturbed environment, for the client to come and be able to share what they are facing and in need a solution they feel they will benefit from.
IN THE FIRST SESSION-
We will have a one to one talk to discuss various things that will help me best support you, days you want counselling, how long for, fees and so that you will have the information you need and assurance of what to expect.
ABOUT CHERISHED VOICES COUNSELLING-
Cherished Voices Counselling Services - Covers a range of different areas one may face such as family issues, emotional abuse, mental health, depression, self-harming. It is for those who face dissatisfaction with life in general and need that balance in life to be able to cope.
When you opt for counselling, or have been referred to counselling from the NHS, GP etc in the sessions you can choose to use your time how you wish, to cry, sit in silence, talk about your life events whether from the past or present, your feelings, emotions and anything you think you need to talk about.
As mentioned before counselling is not giving the client advice, or persuaded action to do something, talking to a counsellor is not to be mistaken with talking to a friend, parent, partner etc. Here the counsellor will be impartial, professional, able to listen to you, in a non-judgmental way to work with your emotions and not get emotional themselves.
A chance to help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself and others in your life to help you find your own solutions. But make no demands on you, only the terms you both agreed in the therapeutic verbal contract at the beginning of the sessions, stating things such as what to expect from counselling, cancellations, lateness, confidentiality etc. Whatever you are going through in your life, always know that with counselling it is your safe haven to discuss everything and anything that you are going through at a pace you are comfortable with, without fear of judgement.
