We believe passionately in what we do and the aims of therapy, enabling clients to explore their difficulties in a safe, non-judgemental environment, where they will feel accepted, listened to, heard and understood. Our aim, as Person-Centred counsellors is to travel alongside our clients, not to change them or rescue them from the distress that overwhelms them. Instead we will provide the space to explore, challenge and clarify those feelings and behaviours that may be hindering their goals.
After an initial meeting, if agreed, the counsellor and client will then proceed to work together over a number of sessions, typically 6 weeks to 6 months.
Clients often present with: Anger issues, anxiety, loss, depression, eating disorders, addictions, domestic violence, emotional/ psychological difficulties, work stress, mental health issues, abuse of all types, self-esteem.
