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:
- 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’,
- 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.
