We are a highly professional team who have experience in many areas where people are struggling. We are empathic and we do not judge you! Our building is in a discreet location so for those who are afraid to be seen coming to counselling we are well situated. However we find that after counselling most of our clients find that the stigma they percieved around counselling was unfounded and are more than happy to tell people about us because it has made such a difference to them!
We also offer choice at Simply - we allocate you a counsellor that best suits your needs however if you do not get on or 'click' with that counsellor then we are happy to refer you to another one on our team so that you can find the 'best fit' for you! We also allow our clients to choose whether they have a male or female counsellor.
We normally find that most clients have seen a change in their mood/feelings/situation within 6 to 10 weeks however this does vary from person to person.
Give us a call and our friendly staff will talk you through what you can expect when you come to us.
