What is counselling?

Counselling offers time for you to explore your problems and work towards a solution. It raises people’s self-esteem and helps them develop the skills to resolve their own past and present problems. It can help you make choices or change, or help you find clarity. In the counselling sessions you can explore various aspects of your life and your feelings, talking about them freely and openly in a way that may not be possible with friends or family.

What happens in counselling sessions?

Counselling sessions are always face to face sessions. You will meet with the same counsellor for the whole of your treatment. Sessions last for 50 minutes and you will usually meet once a week at the same time for up to 12 weeks.
