Counselling & Psychotherapy
In counselling or psychotherapy sessions together we look at various areas of your life that are causing you concern, the feelings connected with them and how you can bring about positive change, talking freely and openly in a confidential, relaxed, non-judgmental environment – which may not always be possible with members of your family and friends. Our therapists use a combination of approaches including Humanistic/Person-centered, psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Counselling and psychotherapy are used to treat
Loss and grief
Counselling and psychotherapy is used to treat stress and anxiety, depression, loss and grief, bereavement, relationship problems, low self-esteem, work related problems and more.
Counselling is a relatively short-term therapy that stems from a need to address problems that, if left unchecked, can lead to related mental and emotional disorders. A counselling session will allow you to discuss and explore any problems causing distress and help to overcome them. Counselling can also help with a sense of loss or lack of direction. Most importantly, counselling gives you a chance to be heard.
Psychotherapy is carried out with an individual (or as a group) and involves talking through a particular problem to find a solution. We will work to develop a rapport so that we can explore emotions and experiences that are the cause of feelings such as anxiety, stress and depression or more serious issues.
With psychotherapy I will work with you , usually over a long period, to overcome psychological, behavioural and emotional problems. By understanding your thoughts, beliefs and personal or past/childhood experiences, I will help you make positive changes to your way of thinking and behaviour.
