Counselling can be offered in different ways. Here at Sutton Counselling we offer a confidential place for you to consider your individual situation. Sitting with a counsellor, you will be able to talk through and explore any feelings and thoughts you raise, no matter how difficult or unpleasant you feel they may be.
People decide to start counselling for all sorts of reasons, such as
- Feelings of frustration or anger, sometimes from nowhere.
- During times of loss or loneliness.
- When it is proving difficult to move on after the death of a loved one.
- Feeling anxious, concerned, or worried about life and the future.
- Relationships – at home or work – not going as well as you would like.
- Following redundancy, or wanting to change career
- Identity issues.
Please view our website or call 0208 661 7869 for more details or to make an appointment.
Should you consider counselling with us, we shall ask you to come in for an initial assessment. Here you will meet individually with an assessment counsellor who will help you decide on the next step. If you decide to continue, and we feel counseling could help, you will be offered regular weekly Counselling sessions with the same counsellor each week. This can be for Brief Therapy lasting 12 weeks, or open-ended.
Training, qualifications & experience
At Sutton Counselling we work psychodynamically, which means linking the present with the past, and also helping to bring unconscious ideas out into the open. Your counsellor will not give you advice or tell you what to do. Instead you will have the time and non-judgmental space to think about things in a different way. Some people find this brings relief.
Sutton Counselling is proud to be a BACP Accredited Service. This requires us to evidence a commitment to competence, high levels of service delivery and professional accountability.
Sutton Counselling is an affiliate of the National Network of wpf Therapy Services. Wpf therapy is a national charity providing high quality training and counselling services for over 40 years.
