What is counselling?

Counselling may be concerned with addressing and resolving specific issues, making decisions, improving relationships with others, coping with crisis, developing personal insight and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict, or developmental issues. It is not telling people what to do, nor is it primarily advice and information, although these aspects may feature in some counselling relationships.
The purpose of counselling is to facilitate positive change by giving clients an opportunity to explore and understand their difficulties and the reactions and feelings surrounding them.

How does counselling help?
• Most problems assume a less frightening dimension once they are aired, enabling you to move more freely.
• By supporting you to start looking at old difficulties in a new way.
• A clearer view of things may give you increased self-confidence and enable you to free yourself of unwanted thoughts and feelings like worry, anxiety and depression.
• Difficulties may crop up in our lives for a wide variety of reasons and it is at these times talking to a counsellor could be most useful. You can talk about anything that is affecting you.

Sometimes it is not in our own best interest to talk about our difficulties with family members, friends or colleagues. Counselling enables your issues to be explored in a non-directive, non-judgemental and empathic (understanding) way.

Confidentiality and Counselling
Confidentiality means that what you discuss during your counselling sessions will be kept private. You will be informed of the limits of confidentiality and these rules will be maintained indefinitely. Coded session notes will be securely kept for seven years, in line with medical practice.

Professional
Counselling is carried out within the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) Ethical Framework, which requires practitioners to be regularly supervised. This ensures the quality and safety of the work they do. Your sessions may be discussed in supervision. The supervision is confidential, and your identity would not be divulged. The BACP Accredited Clinical Supervisor is an external practitioner who is also looking after you.  Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Supervisors who have achieved Accredited status have a substantial level of training and experience that has been approved by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
