Adult Counselling Services
Counselling and Psychotherapy are talking therapies. The basis of counselling and psychotherapy is the relationship that is established between the person being supported and their counsellor or psychotherapist. It is essential that the person being treated feels safe and that his counsellor is trusting and non-judgemental and that the person feels they will be met with respect, sensitivity and understanding so that they are free to speak about whatever is on their mind and make a recovery.
What is Counselling?
Counselling supports and enables the development of greater personal resilience. Taking a here and now focus, it can help to reduce anxiety and depression and negative thinking so that there is greater freedom to think through problems and find solutions and make a recovery. Counselling focuses on supporting our strengths and using these to develop new strategies so that we can find solutions to difficulties. It can help with a wide range of needs from anxiety and depression to relationship difficulties.
What are Talking Therapies?
Psychotherapy is a talking therapy that helps us to make changes that are deep and long-lasting. Taking a dual focus that looks both at our current situation and also any past circumstances that may be connected with it, it is possible to identify preferred patterns and preferences that take charge of our life even when we don’t want them to. This heightened understanding helps make it possible to change these patterns. In the process of making these changes people often re-discover parts of themselves that have become lost or overlooked over time. They develop new personal qualities and strengths and are able to build a richer and more satisfying life.
