Why Visit Counselling?

Often we have people that we rely on to listen to us and help when we have worries and troubles, but sometimes, for a number of reasons we feel unable to ask them for help.  Maybe the problem seems too trivial or too difficult, maybe we are too embarrassed or ashamed about something or maybe we would simply prefer a completely neutral person and place to discuss what is on our minds.  Counselling offers you the chance to get stuff off your chest.

What Happens During Counselling?

You get to talk to us as much or as little as you like.  your counsellor gets to listen carefullly and then checks out that he or she has really heard properly.  As this special kind of talking and listening process goes on you will begin to see more clearly what is happening in your life and you will have a better idea of what decisions to make and how to make them.  We will not be telling you what to do as we believe that you are capable of making your own decisions.  Our job is to offer a warm, supportive environment for you to sort things out for yourself.





How Do I Get an Appointment?

Call our number and speak to one of our admin staff or use the contact form on the contact page.  We will be more than happy to arrange an appointment for you to speak with one of our volunteer counsellors.


What Happens Next?

We will contact you to arrange an appointment, so make sure that you give your most current phone number.  We will leave a message or a text on your phone, but not on your land-line (it's not private enough).  If you can't speak when we ring, just text back with a good time for us to call and we will do just that.  When we speak to you we will arrange a time and a place to meet.













Our counselling is offered by fully trained counsellors and trainee's nearing the end of their training.  All our counsellors are volunteers whom offer their time to the service free of charge.
