What is Counselling & Psychotherapy?

Counselling is an umbrella term used to cover a range of talking therapies such as psychotherapy. The therapeutic relationship is unique to you and what you are looking to gain from therapy and it offers clients the opportunity to set aside time to talk, think and feel about whatever has brought you to therapy. This might be past or present life events, relationships, behaviours, feelings or emotions.

Why do people have counselling?

There is a myth that individuals attend or are offered therapy when they have suffered an extreme traumatic event or who are suffering from severe mental illness.

In life the reality is that most individuals experience traumatic events such as: bereavements, health issues, relationships, to name a few. We can feel that we don’t need to talk to anyone and that we can solve it ourselves, but the reality is that we are only human and things can spiral out of control at any time. It’s at these times we need a little support.

Therefore counselling is available to anyone and everyone experiencing difficulties in themselves and their life; whether those difficulties are dissatisfaction and despondency in life in general or difficulty with feelings such as anxiety, depression, grief or anger, etc. This includes those who may feel isolated or alone without a sufficient support network, even those who - although they have family, friends and a well-established framework - feel they need to talk to someone who is independent and objective.

The aim of counselling & psychotherapy is to offer the opportunity for growth, change and enhanced wellbeing by offering a safe, boundaried and confidential space.
