PRIVATE & CONFIDENTIAL

COUNSELLING

What is Counselling?

Counselling offers a place to explore with someone difficulties you may be having, who is trained neither to judge you or advise you, but to explore the way you think and feel.

Who is it for?

There are many reasons for seeking counselling:

  • You may be feeling upset and distressed for many varied reasons and have problems working out your thoughts, feelings, and relationships with others. 

  • You may feel that you are not in control of the way you want your life to be and lack control or direction. 

  • Your confidence may be affected. Talking can often help to bring a new perspective or understanding or enable you to feel less confused and more confident about your own personal situation.

Confidentiality

Whatever you say is confidential between you and the counsellor. However, there are some exceptional circumstances when confidentiality cannot be fully guaranteed if your own safety, or the safety of others, is considered to be of a serious concern. The Counsellor works with a supervisor. That is a counsellor who is more experienced than they are, to ensure that the counsellor is operating ethically and safely, and care is taken that clients are not identified. The counsellor works within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Code of Ethics.

Sessions

First session assessment will be 60 minutes long and follow up sessions will last 50 minutes at the times agreed between the counsellor and client. The counsellor will review with you on a regular basis to assess how you both feel about the way you are working.
