Counselling

Our counselling service based in our London therapy rooms in Greenwich offers you the opportunity to explore counselling via a variety of methods, including CBT, Eye Movement Desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) and psychodynamic therapy. Below is some helpful information on what to expect from counselling.

Having the capability to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding and being self-aware is part of being human, our thought processes rely on far more than instinct alone.

Due to this, there is an opportunity for the way we think to become a problem and to affect our emotions. We all experience individual challenges or issues in our lives. We deal with these times by talking to family or friends, or by trying to deal with things ourselves. However, there are times when problems may be too much for us to manage on our own, and seeking support and guidance from a professional such as a counsellor can be helpful. Our team at our London therapy rooms give you the space to do just that.

Greenwich Counselling

Counselling, which is classed as a ‘talking therapy’, is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. The counsellor helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to explain the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. In some instances, just the process of telling your story to a counsellor, and being listened to, is helpful.

Counselling provides confidential support. Therefore everything you discuss with the counsellor is private, between you and the counsellor. The only exception to this is when a counsellor has a duty of care to report something that threatens your wellbeing or the wellbeing of others.

Anybody who is struggling with a personal concern can seek counselling. No issue or problem is too big or too small to ask for support.

Common issues that people seek counselling for include:

* grief and/or loss

* communication and relationships issues

* career and work issues

* anxiety, depression and stress

* life changes such as the birth of a new baby, separation, divorce or the death of a family member or friend

* parenting

* addiction

* abuse

* trauma

* self-esteem difficulties

A counsellor is not there to tell you what to do or judge. Alternatively, they will encourage you to talk about what issues you may have in order to uncover any root causes and identify your specific ways of thinking. The counsellor may then work with you to create a plan of action to either help you reconcile your issues or help you to find ways of coping.

Counselling does not come in a one size fits all format and each session is tailored to the individual. There is flexibility within therapy that allows for a variety of counselling formats, including:

* Face-to-face – when you make an appointment with a counsellor to see them in person, usually at their practice. Face-to-face sessions are the most popular form of therapy because they provide an opportunity for you to react to any emotions that arise there and then.

* Individual or group – You can choose to see a counsellor by yourself, or if you prefer you could join a counselling group with people experiencing similar issues. Attending a group counselling session can be helpful if you want to discuss your issues with people who are going through similar issues and you may even gain yourself a support network. Instead, you may wish to see a counsellor alone to preserve your privacy and concentrate on your own feelings.

* Telephone/Skype counselling – often, telephone counselling offers an alternative to face-to-face counselling. This form means talking to your counsellor over the phone instead of in person. This form of counselling can be particularly useful if you are too busy to attend face-to-face sessions, and can be carried out in the comfort of your own home.
