Lots of careful listening on comfy chairs. We know how nerve-racking all this can be. We won’t judge you, or criticise you. We will be friendly, warm and calming and have a genuine interest in your story.
In the first session we will explain how it all works, we will endeavour to gain your trust and respect, and in following sessions we may start to form a mutually agreed plan of action to get you on the road to healing. For other clients, discussing the past is necessary for healing to occur. It’s different for every person.
No, everything we talk about is confidential. We will not discuss your problem with anyone else outside the service.
Every good counsellor has a supervisor to discuss all the best possible options for clients (similar to a Doctor discussing medical notes with a Specialist) but the client’s identity is never revealed during talks.
No, please don’t wait till the problem gets worse. If you feel stressed, depressed, anxious, or just not ‘yourself’ emotionally, we can help.
Often lots of smaller less serious problems can cause massive feelings of stress. We can help you logically tackle these and find direction out of confusion.
Bearing in mind that each person is unique with varying issues, we aim to be effective immediately, however our approach will be dependent on you and what you want from therapy. You may want to talk about the past, or you may just want to learn coping skills.
We mould to you’re needs and requirements to achieve your aims and goals.
Normally it’s best not to, but if it’s the only way you can possibly seek help, then we would accommodate it on the first session to allow you to feel at ease.
You’re no doubt worried about how to approach the subject with them, not wanting to offend or upset them. The best thing you can do is talk to them, they may not know what is happening to them, and you could be the one to show them a way out of the despair.
The fact that you care and support this person will be apparent when you show an interest. Remember, without compassion and empathy, mental illness can be a lonely road. Please contact us for some tips, help and guidance on how to tactfully approach the subject.
We understand that financing your therapy can be difficult sometimes. We have a policy to negotiate on concessional rates. Options of alternate week sessions or paying for 6 sessions up front at a discounted rate are possible. If this still seems too expensive, we can offer you a student counsellor.
Please note concessions are only available for weekday appointments before 5pm
*All sessions are based on a standard 50mins ** Proof of exemption required for concessions
***This is with a student counsellor who is currently undergoing training & are supervised.
