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.
