We’re here for you

How does counselling work?

A counsellor seeks to help you to focus on and understand more clearly the issues that concern or trouble you. The counsellor’s role is to offer support and understanding and to listen and respond in a non-judgmental, non-critical way.

They will respect your values, choices and lifestyle. They will help you explore your feelings and may try to help you discover what lies behind what is troubling you. They can help you to make decisions, choices or changes that are right for you.

Our counsellors are here for to help you through whatever issues you may be experiencing such as:

  • Depression and Low Mood
  • Choices and Transitions
  • Sexual Expression
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Self Esteem / Self Worth
  • Addictions
  • Stress/Anger – Work/Home
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Feeling Unfulfilled
  • Anxiety and Panic Attacks
  • Personal Development
  • Love and Intimacy

Need to talk?


Counselling sessions typically last 50 minutes.  

At the first session, you can talk over the reasons for seeking counselling and together with your counsellor decide on the most appropriate way forward. Some find this session sufficient on its own; others will want ongoing individual counselling or referral to other help

Our low cost therapy fee is aimed at fairly applying means-tested benefits. Our experience so far suggests that our clients who fall into this bracket view this as acceptable.
