WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
Counselling can provide a space for you to hear yourself and be heard by a non-judgemental and supportive person, trained to help you get to where you want to go and develop how you would like to be. Together, you can generate greater insights into what has been going on and how you might have tried to cope with things.
Counselling can offer a range of skills, methods and techniques or tools to help you going forward.
HOW DOES COUNSELLING WORK?
Counselling doesn’t just have to be for difficult moments in your life, it could be that you would like to feel less anxious in certain situations or more confident generally as a person.
Counselling can help explore your individual process - the way you think, feel and behave about certain things. It can also develop ways that enable you to be more aware of this process and re-define it: helping you to be the best you can.
Often counselling is helpful as a short-term course of therapy that focuses on a particular life experience such as divorce, bereavement, health issues and milder forms of mental distress such as anxiety. Counselling can equip you with the skills, methods and techniques that will be most helpful for you in achieving your best. Ideally, it should, in the long run, enable you to become your own counsellor or psychotherapist.
HOW MUCH DOES THERAPY COST AND HOW DO I START?
Therapy lasts for 50 minutes and tends to cost between £50 and £60 for individual sessions and £75 for couples.
Counselling is most effective when conducted weekly for as long as feels helpful and productive. Your therapist will agree with you on the number of sessions that are likely to prove most effective but normally 6 sessions would be the optimal number for achieving lasting and sustainable results. The first initial session is free.
