What is Emotional Therapeutic Counselling?
A blend of modern and traditional counselling and talking therapy for adults, children, couples and families.
Face to Face (including home visits), Telephone, Video, Email or Secure Chat
Fully accredited, confidential, discrete, effective, successful, proven, safe.
Making sense of it all
Giving you the time and emotional support to explore, unravel, pinpoint, understand and express your thoughts and feelings.
In a compassionate, supportive and comfortable non-judgemental environment.
Why do people choose counselling?
For some it’s a specific event such as change in relationship, job or circumstance. For others just the need to talk to someone.
For couples or families it’s often trust, conflict or unresolved differences which bring them.
How can counselling help?
General or specific anxiety, home or work-related stress, sadness, anger, depression, relationship and marital problems.
Imposter syndrome, self-esteem, harmful and obsessive compulsive behaviours & OCD, negative and unhealthy coping strategies (including self-harm).
Bullying, family conflict, narcissism, fear, phobias, mild or severe addictions and panic attacks.
What to expect?
Most people naturally feel anxious about sitting down to talk with someone.
Almost without exception they leave with a warm smile and great sense of relief and invariably say “I wish I had done this earlier”
Yes, people do express emotions, but it’s not all tears and tissues, there is plenty of laughter too. The objective is to sooth the pain, not create it!
