Our Counselling Service
Counselling offers confidential sessions based upon a Person-Centred model of counselling, adhering to the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP) professional code of ethics.
Sessions are offered to help clients explore difficult issues which are having an adverse effect upon their psychological, emotional or physical well-being.
Counselling is not about giving advice. It is about client and counsellor working together in a therapeutic alliance to empower the client to live more resourcefully.
