There are times in all our lives when we go through difficult times, whether these are caused by external factors such as bereavement, relationship issues, job loss etc or it maybe because we feel anxious, sad or depressed.
A survey conducted by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) found that almost one person in five has consulted a counsellor or psychotherapist, while almost half the population know someone who has.
During your counselling sessions, you will be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions. By looking at this a counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes.
Our first session will allow us to meet and have a chat about what you might like from our sessions and look at what issues you are facing. You may not know what you want from counselling but know you want to feel better. Sessions will be at your pace and we will look at what you're experiencing in a caring and gentle way.

What to expect from Counselling.
Counselling is a talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a genuine, accepting and non-judgmental environment.
Is something in your life not quite the way you would like it to be at the moment? This may be something you're going through right now or something you have experienced in your past. If so, it may be useful for you to talk about how you feel with a trained professional who is not a friend, colleague or family member.
