Look at Issues worked with page to find out more of some of the popular issues worked with. There are also some examples of client’s statements which might ring a bell with you.
First time Counselling
If you’re curious about what happens in the first session, then take a few minutes to view our A Beginning Counselling Video which provides an example of how it might go. You can also look at someone’s reflections on their early sessions in therapy in Danielle’s Diary.
Each counselling session usually lasts 50 or 60 minutes and is provided in rooms only used for that purpose. The sessions are confidential and the counsellor is there to support you make sense of what you bring. This may involve helping you to develop awareness into the issues that concern you – and to recover confidence in making the decisions you need to. Or it may be supporting you on a more practical level.
Intensive Therapy Sessions
Sometimes it is possible to have intensive sessions of one and half or two hours where that feels more helpful. It is also possible to meet more than once a week when you want that extra level of support.
Environmentally-influenced Therapy Sessions (See Kate’s profile)
Some sessions are held in a summer house in the garden which provides a different atmosphere. It is also possible to have the session walking at your own pace in the lovely Warley Woods, which is next door to us. This physical movement in these natural surroundings (& the required deeper breathing), can help to support people getting more in touch with their concerns.
And finally, if you don’t see what you’re looking for and would like to chat through your particular needs, then do phone or email us – details on the Contact Us page.
We look forward to helping you make some changes in your life.
