What is Counselling?

"Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom" - Aristotle
 
Counselling is a talking therapy which involves:-
  • Support
  • Recovery
  • Problem-solving
  • Gaining insight or self-awareness
  • Developing new strategies for future living

 

Counselling typically involves change:-
 
  • Change in the way you see yourself
  • Change in the way you think about things
  • Change in the way you feel about yourself

 

Your counsellor will offer you a warm and empathic healing environment; each session will be quality time for you to talk through your problems and anxieties in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental setting that will be uniquely tailored to you.  This type of counselling is known as Person-Centred counselling and was found to be the most effective form of therapy, with noted improvements of over 90% compared to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT = 70%).
