HOW IT WORKS
Confidentiality is an essential part of the counselling process. No
personal information, verbal or written, will shared with anyone without your
consent, unless you or someone else is in danger.
Our professional counselling standards are underpinned by the British Association of Counselling and
Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework for Good Practice which is available here.
We work with adults and young people on many different past and
present life issues from current relationship problems, to low mood, anxiety, loss and traumatic experience including abuse.
The areas listed show the type of experience where counselling
support can be provided but please contact us to ask about anything
that is not mentioned.
Sometimes it’s difficult to talk about issues that are troubling you,
even with the friends, family and people in whom you normally confide.
Counselling offers support and a quiet, private time to talk and think
things through. It is not about the counsellor telling you what to
do or bringing in their own preconceived ideas. It's about really listening and not making judgements. It allows you to
express how you feel, examine things that are worrying you or causing distress
in a safe way in order to gain insights and find a way forward.
Counselling can help you feel more resourceful, calm and confident so
you are able to find clarity and purpose and decide on what is best for
you. It can also be a place to discuss, try out and gain benefit from strategies and tools to help you cope and make changes to the way you react.
Common issues that bring people down include low mood or depression, feeling misunderstood, anxiety, relationship difficulties, negative experiences, past trauma, family issues, loss and bereavement, stress, low self-esteem, confusing thoughts and feelings or worries about the future.
