How does counselling work?

There has been a lot of research into what makes counselling successful with a number of different factors identified. The two most important factors are your commitment to the process and the positive relationship that you have with your counsellor.

As counsellors we aim to build a special trusting relationship with you. Where you will be listened to and understood in a way that you may not have experienced before. What you discuss between you and your counsellor is kept confidential, allowing you to explore openly what is going on for you, and work through this together.

Talking about your emotions can be difficult.  This takes place in a safe, secure environment where you are able to express freely how you feel, ‘saying it aloud’ makes it real and also relieves the pressure of carrying your concerns alone.  Sessions last for 50 minutes and will occur weekly and reviewed regularly. For counselling to be successful it is important that you are able to commit to weekly sessions, at least during the early stages. We will work on a one to one basis, with you setting a pace that is comfortable for you.
