Our Private Counselling Service (Talking Therapies)

Our confidential private talking therapy service is designed to meet your individual needs, with services available for both adults and children.

The aims of our service are to support you to develop coping strategies through therapy and address emotional issues that negatively impact on your life.

Trusting, caring relationships are the core foundation of our mental wellbeing. If we feel safe, secure and valued we are much more likely to stay well and recover faster.


What is Counselling?

Counselling can help lead to positive change with increased self-confidence, self-esteem and the ability to face the future. It gives you the opportunity to talk about issues affecting your life in a safe and confidential environment.

Counselling helps you to explore your thoughts and feelings in order to change behaviours and achieve your goals.

We appreciate that taking the first step to accessing counselling can feel difficult, and we want to make that step as easy as possible.

What is a Counsellor?

In our lives we all have ups and downs and for most of the time we cope with them. However, on those occasions when we need some support, then a qualified counsellor may be of assistance.

A counsellor is someone who will:

  • Actively listen without making judgements
  • Maintain confidentiality
  • Not give advice or tell you what to do, but they will help you find your own answers, reflect and explore your feelings safely

Our counsellors are caring and compassionate and will see you for a series of appointments, which can be weekly or fortnightly to suit your needs. You will be offered a range of sessions to improve your sense of wellbeing.

All our counsellors are experienced, qualified, registered members/accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
