What is Counselling?

Counselling is an umbrella term used to cover a range of talking therapies. Counselling offers the unique opportunity for you and your therapist to set aside time to talk, think and feel about whatever has brought you to therapy. This might be past or present life events, relationships, behaviours, feelings or emotions.

Counselling can be short term or long term as discussed and agreed between you and your therapist.  The counselling relationship is unique to you and what you are looking to gain from therapy.

The aim of counselling is to offer the opportunity for growth, change and enhanced wellbeing in a safe, boundaried and confidential space.

Why do people have counselling?

Often counselling is misunderstood as a service only offered or provided to people who have suffered an extreme traumatic event or who are suffering from severe mental illness.  This is a myth.  

Counselling is available to anyone and everyone experiencing difficulties in themselves and their life; whether those difficulties are dissatisfaction and despondency in life in general or difficulty with feelings such as anxiety, depression, grief or anger etc.  

Counselling is sought by people who may be isolated or alone without a sufficient support network and is also sought by people who although they have family, friends and a well established framework, feel they need to talk to someone who is independant and objective of friends and family.
