What is counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy, which is an activity voluntarily entered into by people who want to explore and understand issues in their lives which may be causing difficulty, pain or mixed emotions.

Counselling is an opportunity to talk to someone in confidence about anything that is worrying you. Counselling is an appointment with the same counsellor every week who will listen to and help you explore how you are feeling.

  • Relationship problems
  • Anxiety management
  • Feelings of anger, low mood, confusion or struggling to handle emotions.
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Problems at home or in school
  • Managing big life events

YES Confidentiality Policy:
