What is counselling?

You may get several different answers to this question depending on who you ask - but the essence will always be the same: counselling is always based on the principle of creating a safe, secure and confidential environment in which the client – you – will discover how to talk about the issues that are really affecting your life, without fear of judgement.

Why would I need it?

Sometimes, the underlying causes of our biggest problems are buried or hidden within us. And it is only through a counselling process that self-awareness can emerge and with it the possibility of making meaningful changes in our lives.

So it’s important to appreciate that counselling doesn’t provide an overnight solution or a quick fix.

How long will it take?

How many sessions are required – each one lasting 50 minutes – will depend on how intensive and deep-seated the issues might be.

What can it help with?

You may have heard the term ‘psychotherapy’. And, in fact, at Tuned in Therapy, I practice what is known as ‘integrative psychotherapeutic counselling’. But whatever it’s called, the face to face counselling process is highly effective in dealing with a wide range of issues that can cause deep distress. Including:

  • Stress & Anxiety

  • Self-defeating behaviours

  • Relationships

  • Bereavement & Loss

  • Anger & Frustration
