Counselling & Talking Therapy

Home  >  Therapy  >  Counselling & Talking Therapy

Many of us know someone who has had counselling or talking therapy to help them cope with a situation which is causing emotional problems, stress or upset. Therapy sessions provide a time and space where you can discuss issues with someone who is trained to listen without judging you, whilst offering support and enabling you to make choices and move forwards in your life.

What is talking therapy?

Talking therapy is about working together to make the changes that you need to achieve the outcome that you want. I draw upon a wide variety of influences within the field of talking therapies including behavioural psychology and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, alongside counselling and psychotherapy approaches such as person-centred counselling and Human Givens, to help you explore your situation and feelings at your pace.

Talking with someone who is impartial and who can offer a fresh perspective can give you time to think and reflect, whilst considering choices and options to enable you to feel better and move towards where you want to be.

Counselling & Talking Therapy Sessions

Talking therapy and counselling is often suited to situations where you may be experiencing difficulties in your life such as low self esteem, anxiety, relationship difficulties or bereavement.

The number of sessions required will depend on your situation and needs. A course of six sessions is often recommended in the first instance, followed by a review. Working with and resolving issues can often be achieved in a fairly short course of sessions and some issues may require longer term therapy. Often problems are resolved in short term therapy (12 sessions or less) and sessions are typically weekly, especially in the early stages. We will discuss your situation and decide on the most appropriate therapy options for you at your initial consultation.

Hypnotherapy, talking therapy and NLP are effective forms of therapy, however people respond differently and therefore results may vary from person to person. Full client commitment and participation is required. Listening to CDs / MP3s and carrying out other therapy tasks between sessions is an essential part of the process and this will be fully explained during your initial consultation.
