Counselling Services in London
Counselling is an endeavour that often has a clearer focus than psychotherapy for example a bereavement or particular crisis. The nature of more clearly defined concerns tends to result in a limited number of sessions. It is never possible to know how long it will take to work through an issue/s, therefore we always suggest to start with six sessions, if you are finding them helpful then we continue.
What to Expect from our Counselling Service
The sessions involve us meeting, talking and listening together with the mutual purpose of paying careful attention to your concerns and gaining a greater understanding of your own particular situation. It is a shared process and the therapeutic relationship can only be nurtured in a safe and dependable environment.
We work carefully and respectfully, honouring your privacy, autonomy and independence and your freedom and ability to make choices for yourself. Within the therapeutic relationship you can explore your physical and emotional feelings, your thoughts and behaviours and the contexts in which they arise.
The perspective we bring to the work is based upon our clinical experience, knowledge of theoretical approaches and experience of our sessions.
We have many years of experience, and provide a wide range of Counselling and Psychotherapy services. We also offer many approaches including Integrative Psychotherapy, Art Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy and Existential Psychotherapy.
Couples Counselling can be a positive experience at any stage of a relationship, new challenges and possibilities arise where counselling can facilitate growth, change and alleviate conflict. Very often, it is helpful when one or both of you are feeling misunderstood or isolated, or when you identify negative and destructive patterns.
