What Happens in a Counselling Session

Our belief as counsellors is to be listened to and supported. This forms the basis of a session. There are many models and ways of exploring the issues that people come with and each counsellor may work in a slightly different way.

We will have initial assessment via the telephone where you will be asked questions like:

  • Have you ever had counselling before?
  • What has bought you to counselling at this time?
  • What would you like to gain from having counselling?

Usually a session will last between 50 – 60 minutes.

As counsellors we aim to:

  • Provide a safe and welcoming space for people to come and talk about the things that are challenging.
  • Provide a confidential service within the bounds of legal and ethical structures.
  • Be non-judgemental in how we interact with people from all areas of life regardless of gender, religion, race or any other differences.
  • Provide a place for people to confront their issues and for facing their fears.
  • Help people to find a solution or answer to the issues. The counsellor will not make a decision for you or offer advice.
