Counselling

Counselling offers our clients a space to address underlying issues; a space where they can feel heard, accepted, and safe.

Our counselling services evolved over time, bourne out of a need for our clients to be able to access timely and mission-critical therapeutic interventions. Unlike typical NHS-funded counselling our service is not time-limited – our clients often have highly complex needs and our counselling provision is truly tailored around the needs of the individual.

What does our service involve?

  • Our counselling service enables our clients to speak about current and past problems and issues with a trained professional who is unbiased and non-judgemental.
  • Counselling is a space for personal development, not just crisis management.
  • Many of our clients come to counselling wanting to develop greater self-confidence and reduce anxiety, so they can move forwards more effectively in life with greater levels of happiness.
  • Our counsellors encourage and support clients to talk through past trauma helping clients to develop some skills and tools to challenge any unhelpful thinking, and support them in accessing and managing emotions, so they become empowered to resolve their own problems.

How do we deliver our Counselling Service?

  • We have a team of experienced, qualified counsellors – we also offer a small number of volunteer placements for 3rd-year student counsellors each year.
  • All our counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or equivalent.
  • Our service abides by the Code of Ethics of this Association.
  • All of our counsellors are experienced in delivering, face-to-face and remote sessions using Zoom, Skype and FaceTime.

What are the outcomes of using our service?

  • We have a pool of counsellors who have areas of expertise in:
    • Domestic abuse
    • Family breakdown
    • Childhood and adult sexual trauma
    • Substance misuse
    • PTSD
    • Anxiety
  • By accessing our counselling service our clients develop greater resilience and self-awareness, developing the skills they need to tackle the issues in their life.
