We’re all qualified counsellors and we all have experience of working with adults and young people and men and women who’ve each come to counselling for a variety of reasons. We’ve counselled in small and large charities, children’s centres, women’s centres, colleges and specialist sexual abuse recovery centres as well as in private practice.
We appreciate choosing a counsellor can be really difficult; the amount of counsellors can be overwhelming, the way they explain what they do can be confusing to non-counsellors. Our aim is to try and ‘demystify’ counselling, to help you feel comfortable contacting us but also to reassure you that we are competent to work with whatever you’re dealing with.
Some people might need reassurance that we’ve worked with their particular issue or concern before so we’ve listed some of the reasons our clients have come to us in the past.
Bereavement & Loss
Bullying - school & work
Domestic Abuse or Violence
Life changes - divorce, separation, bereavement, miscarriage
Mental Health diagnosis
Self Esteem/Self Identity
Self Harm & Suicidal Thoughts
Trauma & PTSD
Work related issues - stress, redundancy, anxiety
This isn’t an exhaustive list and the reason you're seeking counselling might not be on here. Sometimes you might not actually be able to put your finger on, or give a reason as to why you feel as you do and that's okay with us. Sometimes you might know what the problem is but not know how yet to deal with it and that's also okay. Please do call us and find out if we can help.
