Solution focussed talking-therapy in a confidential, safe and structured environment. 

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy, where you can speak and be listened to in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment. The therapist will work with you and help you to navigate your way through emotional difficulties. Counselling is solution focussed, and by giving you gentle, structured support, you will learn coping strategies and navigational tools to empower you towards your own resolutions. 

You will learn about positive and negative behaviour patterns, understand your own behaviour and that of others around you to make changes in your life and move on in a more positive way.


Benefits of Counselling

Solution focussed counselling looks at change. Whether that be a change in thoughts, feelings or behaviours. It is structured in a way that helps you to make the changes you require, and help you to move forwards in a positive way. 


Counselling may support you with:

  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Relationship problems 
  • Anger management
  • Bereavement, Loss, Miscarriage
  • Panic Attacks, Fears, Phobias
  • Bullying and Low Self Esteem
  • Weight Loss and Eating Disorders

  • (PTSD) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Pain management
  • Managing illness

What to expect   

All our trained therapists offer a safe space for you to be heard and to explore ways of working with your issues that will allow you to move forward in a happier and healthier way. Our Counsellors all offer a FREE no-obligation consultation where you can discuss the issue(s) you would like to work on before deciding whether to proceed.
