We work in a holistic and integrated way. In short term counselling we apply ourselves to addressing the needs of each individual in a respectful and confidential way.
What can I expect?
We will offer you an initial meeting in which you can discuss in confidence your particular needs. The next step is mutually agreed and usually involves referral to a counsellor in our teams.
Counselling offers the opportunity to discuss problems and difficulties with a person trained to work in a non-judgmental, caring way.
Your safety is our primary concern. Meetings will be in a venue that is safe, comfortable and confidential.
