Help us, help you...


During difficult times, talking through our thoughts and feelings can help to identify what we can do to turn things around. Counselling is a form of talking therapy and can help you to take greater control of your life and improve your confidence.

Counselling provides you with a safe place to talk.

You’ll work with an experienced Counsellor on an individual basis. Your first appointment is an initial assessment, where you would look at why you’ve come to counselling and find out what your Counsellor can offer you. Your Counsellor will also complete a short assessment to understand how things are for you at that particular point in time.

If you and your Counsellor decide that counselling can be of help to you, further sessions will be arranged. Sessions are usually held at the same time and place each week.
