How does it work?

Counselling is an opportunity for you to talk to a professional therapist to help you understand yourself and your situation. This might involve reflecting on your life experiences and your responses to new ones. The counsellor will also help you to identify what changes in life style could reduce any distress you feel, and to support you as you consider how to do this. Depending on what you are able to share, the counsellor works with you to explore how you can progress towards living in a way that is more satisfactory and resourceful for you. Although the counselling offered is primarily non-directive and non-advisory, in some situations you may want more positive guidance from specific information and advice. The counsellor will suggest how this might be obtained

 

How Does Counselling Work in Practice?

Counselling takes place in a private setting so that you can feel free to share your concerns in confidence. In the initial session, you will be able to talk to the counsellor to clarify the areas that you want to cover together. The counsellor will suggest the number of times you might need to meet to achieve your objectives. Each session is 55 minutes, normally at the same time each week. Depending on how things work out, you may wish to take short breaks in the process to work on issues that have emerged for you, returning later when you are ready to do more work.
