What is Counselling?
Sometimes we encounter difficulties in coping with our everyday lives and counselling can give you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings. Talking can help us to understand what is wrong and explore ways of changing things thereby helping us to resolve dilemmas and make clearer, measured choices.
The aim is not to provide you with quick and easy answers, but the counsellor will listen to you and try to help you find your way forward.
Issues counselling can help with
Although each person is unique, and no two circumstances are the same, we can help a person move forward with most difficulties, including:
- Anxiety and stress
- Abuse of any kind
- Relational difficulties
- Work related problems
- Separation or divorce
- Low self-esteem/loss of confidence
- Spiritual issues
All counselling is by appointment only. Normally, the sessions will last for 50 minutes, and are on a weekly basis. The day and time will be mutually agreed by counsellor and client, and should remain constant throughout the process. There may be a waiting time between your initial enquiry, and the time you are seen. To make an appointment please contact Liz Cashman.
We operate our service on a donation basis, but will not exclude anyone on financial grounds. However, as there are costs incurred in running the service, a sliding scale will be discussed on enquiry, or at the initial assessment.
Currently there are two qualified counsellors working in the service.
Liz Cashman – Trained as Person Centred Counsellor
Post Graduate Diploma – BACP (Reg) and A.C.C. member.
Barbara Brian – Trained as Psychodynamic, Person Centred, and also Creative Therapist.
