WHY COUNSELLING?

WHEN FAMILY IS NOT ENOUGH

You might have concerns on your mind, but no one in your family and friendship circle is appropriate to share them with.  Friends and family can be well-intentioned, but sometimes they are too close, and conflicts of interest can occur.  Counselling helps you to air issues in a friendly, totally confidential space, at a pace, and in a style, that works for you.

DISCLOSING DIFFICULT ISSUES

Furthermore, some disclosures are difficult to make, even to those closest to you.  Speaking with a professional who is also a caring human being, can be a first step to bringing things out into the open.  You can return to your daily life knowing that you have shared with someone who cares, and who can offer you support in finding ways forward.

FINDING RELIEF

At rock bottom, many find that counselling provides a much-needed release.  You may find yourself relieved of a burden, and able to focus again.  Empathy from a counsellor or psychotherapist can assist you in finding empathy for aspects of yourself that you have had difficulty accepting.  And self-acceptance can be the road to accepting and improving your world.

WHAT TO EXPECT

If you make contact, you will first be offered a free ten minute phone call, in which we can discuss options.  Usually this results in arranging a free first session.  If, then, you want to go further, we may agree to a series of further sessions.

There is no right or wrong number of sessions, but in most cases we agree an initial course of 6 sessions, with further counselling agreed after that as appropriate.

  • Face-to-face sessions are in Guildford, and the standard cost is £40 per session
  • Significant concessions are available for those on a low income, and especially for those in extreme financial difficulty.  Please don’t be afraid to ask, as we would rather you made that choice than feared the cost
