Face to Face Counselling
Person centered counselling generates a non judgemental, empathic and genuine environment. Personal, couples counselling and conflict resolution services are available. The need for counselling can arise at any time; for some it follows a traumatic event, loss or a change; for some, it is simply a tool used to increase personal awareness, gain improved perspective, motivation or objectivity. For many, simply to be heard is to begin healing, so counselling provides an extremely effective means of 'feeling better' and moving forward. It is often difficult to apply the same rationale or logic to our own feelings and experiences, as it is whilst viewing others - counselling provides a wonderfully supportive and safe space, where you can work through any issues which impact upon your existence, knowing you are genuinely cared for by a professional and confidential counsellor, working with you towards your personal goals.
