What we do
We work with individuals, couples and young people aiming to have a minimal waiting list so we can respond promptly to people's needs. Currently we offer a blended service offering online and phone counselling for some people, whilst providing face to face counselling for those who need it.
We understand that everyone is different, so we use an Integrative method of counselling which combines the approaches of Person-Centred Counselling, Psychodynamic Counselling, and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) allowing a flexible approach and tailoring sessions to suit clients’ needs. We invite clients with faith to include spiritual beliefs and experiences in their counselling discussions.
Situations that we can help with include; anxiety and depression, stress, illness, abuse, relationship problems, loss and bereavement, trauma, unresolved issues, lifestyle problems, low self-esteem and low confidence, Asperger’s syndrome and autistic spectrum disorder, and spiritual issues.
In order to give the best help we are unable to work with clients who are currently receiving counselling or psychotherapy from another service.
