What is Counselling?

Counselling is a way of addressing problems by exploring personal feelings with someone who, whilst supportive, is not directly involved in the situation.

A Counsellor will:

  • listen carefully to what you have to say

  • help you to express your feelings

  • help you to explore and understand your difficulties

  • help you to find ways of managing these more effectively

Although it may sometimes be appropriate to offer advice or guidance the emphasis is very much on enabling you to achieve change, rather than telling you what to do.


Counselling takes place under strict conditions of confidentiality and generally nothing you discuss will be disclosed to anyone without your permission.. However, here are some legal and safety situations when confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. These are explained at your first session

How can Counselling help?

Counselling may help if you are feeling depressed, anxious, unhappy, unfulfilled or overwhelmed.
You may have tried to deal with your problems yourself but still feel you need help.
Counselling can help you develop skills and strategies to enable you to cope with your problems and to
make your life and your relationships better.

Counselling may also be helpful to those who are struggling with weight loss or trying to quit smoking.

How often and how long do I need to come to Counselling?

When you first come to counselling you may wish to come every week. As time goes on you may come once a fortnight or once a month. It is your choice. Counselling continues for as long as you and/or your counsellor feel it is necessary. It could be for just a few weeks or for a few months
