Counselling Therapies

Our in-house counsellor is trained to listen sympathetically and can help people deal with any negative thoughts and feelings that they have.

As well as counselling, there are a number of other types of talking therapies. For example, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy that can be used to retrain a person’s way of thinking to help them cope with stressful situations.

For example, counselling may be helpful in treating:

  • Depression,
  • Anxiety,
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD),
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),
  • Long-term illnesses,
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia,
  • Substance abuse,
  • A loss or bereavement,

  • A miscarriage/pregnancy loss,
  • A change in personal circumstance or relationship,
  • A life adjustment such as having children,
  • Your children leaving home, the so called ’empty nest syndrome’,
  • Retirement,
  • Poor health,
  • Or you may be trying to resolve other issues that seem too difficult to tackle alone.

Your GP will refer you if this service is appropriate to your needs.
