One-to-one Counselling

One to one counselling can help you to explore with a counsellor anything you feel is insurmountable or overwhelming. You will meet your counsellor at regular intervals, for example weekly or fortnightly, to explore whatever it is that is bringing you to counselling. Some examples of topics that are often brought to counselling are below (please note this list is not exhaustive!):

  • Addictions – e.g. alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography
  • Phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Money worries
  • Struggles with ill health
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Depression
  • Bereavement / Grief / Other loss
  • Trauma – e.g. rape, sexual abuse, an accident that happened to you or a loved one
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Thoughts about suicide
  • Self-harm
  • Eating issues
  • Life changes
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Infertility
  • Post-natal depression
  • Self-esteem
  • Spiritual issues
  • Identity issues – e.g. around gender or sexual orientation
  • Sleep problems
  • Stress
  • Work problems

Usually you will meet with your counsellor until you feel that you are ready to stop counselling. Your counsellor is there to help you, although sometimes the hardest part to comes to terms with is that counselling can be hard work for you too! Counselling often won’t change a situation but it can help you to process pain and perhaps come to terms with things in a new way – get a new perspective or be empowered to change things yourself.

“Thank you for sitting and listening through what were often double sessions! It makes such a difference not just in the lives of those you support but their loved ones too. For I know my family will continue to benefit from all your support in helping me to become who I am today.”
