What is counselling?

Rob Adcock Interviews Donna Coupland

Counselling offers a secure and confidential space to share your thoughts and explore feelings. You may be experiencing distressing symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, or you may be dissatisfied with your life, or experiencing a loss of direction. Often people come to us feeling that they are no longer coping as well as they could be with day to day life. Whatever it is that you bring you will be treated with acceptance and respect.

How can counselling help?

Your counsellor is there is to help you regain a sense of control and direction, and will explore with you different aspects of your life so that you can see more clearly what you want and what needs to change to achieve your goals.

Our counsellors regard each individual as unique and will tailor sessions to meet your needs. They work flexibly and integratively, making full use of their expertise and extensive training.
