Counselling

Coping with Life's major changes

Counselling and Psychotherapy develops an interpersonal relationship between practitioner and client to enable the development of self-understanding at a deep level, to create changes in thought processes and empowering individuals to change their life.

The role of a practitioner is to focus on specific problems, helping the client to restructure their thinking and attain deep personal insight to bring about major changes in their life, whilst simultaneously fostering their wellbeing.

This process is a safe and confidential collaboration, with the client being an active participant in the counselling process at every stage.

Practitioners are trained in a range of modalities to work with clients from diverse backgrounds, exploring the many  experiences they may have encountered over their lifetime.

As a result of the sessions, the client may achieve changes in perspective, new insights and ways of thinking about situations, a heightened awareness of self, an enhanced capacity to tolerate and regulate emotional situations, develop alternative strategies to assist with future decision making.
