Professional counselling in Weston super Mare
Are you struggling with difficult emotions? Feeling low and lacking in motivation? Stuck in patterns of thinking, behaving and relating that you feel powerless to change?
We are experienced BACP Registered / NCS Accredited counsellors offering counselling, couples counselling and trauma therapies, including EMDR and the Rewind Technique. We are based in Worle, Weston-super-Mare and our services are available to those aged 18 and over.
Whether you have complex and long-standing mental health needs or you feel you could just do with some support to get through a difficult time, it is likely we can help. We offer short-term counselling and longer term psychotherapy, according to your individual needs. If you are unsure what you need, our no-obligation, low cost introductory session gives you an opportunity to discuss your concerns and helps you to decide whether Counselling is the right next step for you.
For many of our clients, counselling has proven to be a really valuable and life-changing process. Please browse this website to find out more about how we can help.
How does counselling help?
Counselling provides you with a confidential, non-judgmental space in which you can come to understand yourself and your feelings more deeply, and in which new perspectives and new possibilities for change can emerge. Your counsellor’s role is not to give advice, but rather to facilitate self-exploration, change and growth. You won’t ever be told what to do or be pressurised into making changes you don’t want to make, but you will be challenged to consider new and more empowering ways of thinking and behaving, which can lead to constructive changes and/or a greater acceptance of how things are.
What can counselling help with?
In counselling, you can talk about anything that is bothering you, however large or small you think the problem is. Your concern may be about something that happened years ago, or you may need to talk about a particular problem in your current life. You may not even have a specific problem to bring but are aware of underlying feelings of unhappiness or confusion.
Counselling can help with a wide range of issues and concerns, including:
- Depression and anxiety
- Being bullied, harassed, abused
- Relationship difficulties
- Low self-worth
- Facing difficult decisions about the future
- Addressing unwanted patterns of behaviour, eg. unhealthy eating habits, self-harming
- The impact of past physical, emotional or sexual abuse
- Trauma symptoms
We offer an introductory session at £25 – £30 (depending on the counsellor you see), so that you can discuss your needs and get a sense of whether counselling or some other form of help is likely to be the most helpful way forward for you.
