"Putting myself forward for counselling was something I never ever thought I would do, but my counsellor was so easy to talk with." - Brenda
Our team of counsellors provide a range of counselling and psychotherapy interventions including person-centred counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and other forms of psychotherapy. We focus on working with people in an individual sense, utilising both short-term and longer-term therapy in an attempt to meet individual needs.
What is counselling and psychotherapy?
Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms for a range of 'talking therapies'. In general, counselling and psychotherapy is about providing a space for people to come and talk about your problems and feelings in a confidential and safe environment, with the aim of both them and the counsellor working together to understand and address the problems faced.
Who is counselling for?
We aim to provide support to people who have experienced/are experiencing a neurological condition. Neurological conditions have a wide-ranging impact on our health, both physically and mentally. We are open to supporting all neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, epilepsy, stroke, tumour and acquired brain injury (to name but only a few!). There are many, many neurological conditions and we are open to hearing from people with any condition.
As well as working with people who have a neurological condition, we also offer counselling therapy services to those who care for people with a neurological condition.
Our therapy services allows us to work with a wide range of issues affecting mental health including anxiety, depression, trauma (including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) phobias, grief/bereavement, along with a whole range of issues which people with neurological conditions may experience.
Do we only provide one-to-one counselling?
As well as one-to-one counselling, we also work with couples, families and provide group therapy.
