What is counselling? Counselling is really helpful when you are going through times of stress. It is useful to talk to someone impartial who will not give advice but will help you to find the right answers for your predicament. Sometimes we have the answers already but exploring with a counsellor can help you feel confident with your decision making.
What is person-centred counselling? This is a type of counselling that is solely focussed on the here and now and where you want to go. This is client lead therapy, you choose what we talk about, you are in charge.
What is CBT/ Can I have CBT? CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) is a tool that I use with certain issues. It is commonly known about as it is what the NHS primarily uses. It focuses on the problem and then changing the behaviours to give you a different outcome.
How many sessions of counselling will I need? I usually work with clients for a minimum of 6 sessions. This will enable us to build a strong therapeutic relationship and for you to feel comfortable talking through your issues. Many people find 6 enough, others need a few more. I review on a regular basis to make sure that the sessions are giving you what you need.
