individual, couple, family and group sessions

What is counselling?
Counselling is talking to someone about your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and actions in a private and confidential setting.  The aim of counselling is to help you to explore and understand your emotions and deal with them in healthy and appropriate ways. Counselling can help empower you to make better life choices, reaching and realising your full potential. Counselling also gives you a space to be listened to without being judged or criticised.

Coaching skills and techniques can be integrated with counselling if you would like a more proactive and creative approach.  Techniques include goal setting, problem solving and decision making.

How long will each session be?

The sessions are usually weekly lasting 50 minutes, but can be flexible to meet individuals’ needs.
