We can help
If you are struggling with some aspect of life, especially if you are feeling stuck or overwhelmed, counselling may be helpful for you. Counselling can bring a fresh perspective and personal growth, allowing you to make changes and live a fuller, more enjoyable life.
Counselling can be helpful for a variety of issues including:
Anxiety, Bereavement, Loss, Abuse, Eating Disorders, Depression, Faith issues, Relationship issues and Trauma.
Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone about what troubles you in a safe, understanding and non-judgemental environment. A counsellor will not tell you what to do or impose their own views on you. Instead they use their knowledge and skills within the counselling process to enable you to work through your thoughts, feelings and behaviours with the aim of bringing about positive change.
At times counselling can seem like hard work, as it may mean facing difficult emotions. But remember, the aim of counselling is to free you to enjoy life more fully.Get in touch
Sessions are by appointment only. We generally offer appointments during office hours, although a limited number of evening and weekend appointments are available.
The initial meeting with your counsellor lasts around an hour. You will have a chance to share your concerns and find out more about how your counsellor works. From this, you can both decide if counselling is right for you at this time. There is no charge for this initial session.
We offer weekly counselling sessions of one hour. Each person differs in how they respond to counselling, however most people experience some positive change in 6 to 10 sessions. Some people will need fewer sessions and some more. Along with your counsellor, you will regularly review how the therapy is working for you.Get in touch
Standard fee: £30 per session
Those able to pay more than £30 per session are welcome to do so, as this enables us to offer counselling to those on lower incomes.
Our aim is that no-one will be refused counselling for lack of money, so we offer a limited number of sessions at a reduced rate. You will be asked to contribute towards the cost.Get in touch
