Our counselling and psychotherapy services are offered in a variety of languages and work in a sensitive manner, taking into account the different faiths and cultural beliefs of our clients.
How we help
Counselling and psychotherapy is a process that enables you to talk about your problems and difficulties in a safe and confidential environment, being listened to without judgement. Therapy can help you to understand how you see and interpret your problems or issues and help you to work towards managing these issues, looking at the outcomes you wish to achieve from therapy.
A variety of different therapeutic approaches can be used and you and your counsellor can discuss which approach may be most beneficial to you.
