What is counselling?
Counselling is a one to one opportunity, over either short or long term periods, to help you bring about effective change or enhance your wellbeing.
Our role as the counsellor is to support and enable you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours by talking openly and freely. All information shared between you and your counsellor remains strictly confidential (unless someone is at risk of harm) to ensure that a strong, trusting, safe relationship can be built.
Our belief when working with all clients is to be non judgemental, genuine and empathic with who you are and what you are experiencing in your life.
After your initial enquiry over the phone or via email we will arrange a time for you to come and have an assessment at the clinic in Ashford Kent.
The assessment is treated like a first counselling session however in that time we will discuss your need for counselling, goals and answer any questions you have about the process of therapy. If you feel you want to go ahead then we would arrange a regular time to meet with either myself or another counsellor in the team.
There is no obligation after our assessment to go ahead with counselling, some people may change their mind or feel that therapy is not for them and that is fine. In order for counselling to be successful you have to be ready and willing to fully engage in the process.
