One to One Counselling

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a talking therapy which enables you to discuss any difficult feelings or problems they may have in a confidential and safe space. can help you to build a better understanding of yourself and the way you tend to think about issues in your life, which can then help you move towards a clearer understanding of whatever problem you are facing at the time. Counselling can also provide you with tools you can use to help you find your own answers, resolving your problems in a way that feels best for you.

The process of talking to a counsellor, who endeavours to understand what it is to be you and remains non-judgemental and accepting, is often found to be very helpful. Counselling can help you make sense of what has happened or happening and re-discover perspective and valuable levels of self-acceptance to help you to move forward. Counselling provide a safe and supportive space where you can explore difficult feelings and events and move towards finding your own solutions to problems you are facing.

What is integrative therapy?

An integrative therapist is trained in and can employ differingtypes of counselling which can include the following;

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – This is a therapy that looks at helping us to manage problems by changing the way in which we think, feel and behave.

Transactional Analysis – This is a therapy that looks at our social interactions, allowing us the opportunity to gain insight into how we relate to ourselves and the world around us.

Person-centred Counselling – This therapy works in a client-d led way which is non-directive and believes in each individual’s ability and potential for change and personal growth.

Mindfulness – The practice of allowing ourselves to experience life in the present moment. Paying full attention to our bodies and surroundings with each available breath can give us the opportunity to observe our thoughts and feelings but without becoming caught up in them.

At Room to Talk Counselling, all of our practitioners are trained in working which means they are able to tailor their therapy to meet the unique needs and goals of each client. Working in this way gives clients the opportunity to explore in a flexible manner the aspirations they have for counselling and how these might be achieved.

Individual Counselling

There are many ways that counselling can be helpful. At your first assessment appointment, which lasts about 50 minutes, you will be invited to discuss your personal hopes and aims in therapy.

We will provide time to discuss any concerns you may have about counselling and at the end you will be able to decide if you would like to continue with further sessions. Counselling can be short or long term and you may stop at any time, simply by letting us know.
