What is Counselling?
Counselling provides a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space where people can use the time exactly as they need it to start to explore past traumas, current anxieties or destructive behaviours that are making their lives difficult to cope with.
Clients may come to counselling wanting to address problems like anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, trauma, relationship and sexual issues, low self-esteem, or simply because they are experiencing feelings of disillusionment that can’t be attributed to any one thing. Counselling can also be used to attend to experiences of violence, sexual and childhood abuse, addiction, isolation, suicidal feelings and behavioural compulsions and patterns.
It is through the relationship between counsellor and client that these issues can begin to be understood and transformed. Our counsellors are warm and empathic, and draw upon a variety of therapeutic models and techniques that include psychodynamic, existential, person-centred and transpersonal perspectives, that together aim to improve our clients’ inner and outer experience of the world.
