Alongside the psychological support we offer in our centres, we can offer you a number of one-to-one counselling sessions with our experienced psychological professionals, either online or by telephone, whichever you’d prefer.

This talking therapy is tailored to meet your individual needs and our counsellors will create a confidential space for you to be able to speak freely and without judgement about whatever issues are on your mind

Our counsellors will encourage you to talk about whatever is making your life more complicated. This exploration gives you an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of your difficulties. Together, you’ll plot a course of action that allows you to navigate your way through issues, either by overcoming them or developing strategies that will help you to cope with them.

To find out more please call us on 0800 389 8820 or make an enquiry online.
