WHAT TYPE OF COUNSELLING DO WE OFFER?
As part of our crisis intervention service we offer short-term focused counselling to those young people and adults who have been bereaved by someone’s suicide or who feel in crisis themselves. Some people find it more helpful to talk openly and in confidence to someone outside of their family or friends. Counselling offers a safe and professional space where personal issues can be explored, in order to create change. The counsellor does not judge or offer advice and helps to look at different options or coping strategies.
All our counsellors are qualified and experienced practitioners who are working to a high standard within the BACP ethical framework.
Some feedback from our service users who engaged in counselling:
"Counselling helped me with how I was feeling and how to deal with a hard situation. I got things of my mind that I couldn't talk about."
"It helped me work through my problems and gave me a reason to live from week to week."
"It helped me clarify my doubts and how to deal with my sorrow and pain."
We also offer in partnership with Lifesprings complimentary therapies.This service is provided in house and offers a safe place to let go of physical aches and pains, allowing a sense of relaxation, a space to clear and relax the mind.
