What issues can Counselling and Psychotherapy help with?
There are many reasons why people benefit, and all reasons are valid.
It is important not to minimise your issues because other people don’t understand them, or, you believe that other people have issues worse then your own.
Examples of issues are experiencing loss, bereavement, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, issues with food, confision about sexuality, relationship problems and illness to name but a few.
What is Talking Therapy?
The most common form of Counselling and Psychotherapy is ‘Talking Therapy’ (as opposed to Art, Drama or Music Therapy for example).
There are many different types of Talking Therapy. Most Counsellors and Psychotherapists use an ‘integrative’ approach, which means that they use techniques from various therapeutic approaches, to best meet the needs of their clients.
If you would like a specific type of talking therapy, please ask.
In addition to Integrative, we are able to offer Person Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Person Centred Therapy
Person Centred Therapy is a talking therapy which offers you an empathic and non-judgemental environment to explore and work through your issues.
It focuses on discovering why you think, feel and behave the way you do, and supports you to make changes to improve your situation.
We can offer you pure Person Centred Therapy, or, a combination of this and other therapeutic approaches.
Your confidentiality is taken very seriously and will only be broken in extreme circumstances. For more information see our client agreement.
Our Counsellors and Psychotherapists are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and adhere to the relevant code of ethics.
We have a choice of Counsellors and Psychotherapists who are BACP accredited.
