Hello and a warm welcome to Halcyon Counselling.
We’re a group of counsellors based in West Yorkshire who share a similar outlook on counselling (and life). We’ve chosen to work together not only because we like and respect each other, but because we feel our various skills and experience complement each other. We work with people from all walks of life who seek counselling to help them deal with, work through or accept the not so pleasant parts of life.
Our mission is simple: To offer counselling that puts you, the client, at the heart of what we do. At Halcyon Counselling we treat and respect you as an individual; not a diagnosis or an issue.
We’ve written a blog aimed at explaining what counselling is to hopefully dispel some of the myths around counselling and encourage more people to seek the support and help of a counsellor. It’s called What on Earth is Counselling? which we feel is an appropriate title :-)
We know it can be a scary or unsettling experience to seek out counselling; particularly when you feel that you should be able to deal with what’s troubling you without outside help. All Halcyon counsellors have been in a similar position with all of us having had our own counselling.
We therefore feel it’s our job as counsellors to put you at ease, to begin as we mean to go on, by being open and honest so that together we can build a relationship that allows you to talk about what’s affecting or concerning you openly. We know how important this was to us when we were the client. We’re experienced in working with clients on both a short term and on an open ended basis; but overall it’s you who is in charge. You decide how long you wish to attend counselling for.
