WHAT IS COUNSELLING?
Counselling is a therapeutic, confidential relationship between a Client and Counsellor based on trust, respect, empathy and understanding. The aim of counselling is to help empower the Client to find self-defined ways of dealing with past issues that enables them to heal and move forward.
Counselling sessions are conducted on a one-to-one basis in a safe and confidential environment. Generally, it takes between 4 and 6 sessions although it may be more or less depending upon the issue(s) being addressed and how the Client responds. The initial consultation (which is free) gives the Client the opportunity to relay what they want to explore during the sessions should they decide to engage our services. The initial consultation will take approximately 30 minutes and will also set out the process, expectations and fees.
