STUDENT/QUALIFIED COUNSELLORS – 1 to 1 COUNSELLING

Our counsellors offer a space for you to talk through your problems related to anxiety, depression and stress in a non-judgemental environment, either face to face or online. They can support you in looking at issues that are within your control and where you want to make positive changes. All of our counsellors, student or qualified, have regular support and supervision to maintain their integrability and safety in working with clients. The initial assessment will inform which kind of counsellor is appropriate for your needs. We offer up to 52 sessions on a sliding scale for payment, based on your individual circumstances. Invoices are sent every two weeks and payment can be paid via Bank or in cash, receipt provided.

The 3 below items are possible sources of early support while you are waiting for your counselling to begin. Each of them are brief interventions

Claire qualified as a Coach over a decade ago and specialises in bringing a mindful approach to each session. The hour will constitute a safe space for you to talk whilst Claire will mindfully listen and give feedback. Her role is to be a conscious sounding board whilst also bringing clarity to the situation with a view to being more open to move forward in a way that feels better. The aim is to utilise these coaching sessions for a specific challenge/situation so that a single session will generally suffice. 1 or 2 sessions available.

Whilst Jess is training to be a Play Therapist, she is also qualified as a Mindfulness Coach. The purpose of her sessions is to remind people of practices that will allow them to be more present. Mindful practice calms the nervous system and allows the body/mind to rest, it can help in calming overwhelm, quietening the thinking mind and easing pain, both physical and emotional. The aim will be to create daily habits that will positively impact your sense of wellbeing. 1-6 sessions available.

Through combinations of journaling, therapeutic and creative writing techniques Sam will guide you to explore the feelings associated with difficult experiences, enabling you to process the unhelpful narratives that are preventing you from moving forward. Sam will provide a safe space while listening non-judgementally with an aim to encourage you to break through emotional blockages and create new pathways to more helpful and positive narratives. 4-12 sessions available, held online..
