What is a Counsellor?
A Counsellor is a highly trained professional able to listen in a nondirective way and help you to look at your own skills and resources and how you might use them to help yourself make changes and resolve some of your difficulties. Past experiences are often the driver for present anxieties and behaviours, your Counsellor can help you to understand and manage these.
All our Counsellors are professionally trained and members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) www.bacp.co.uk. All discussions with your Counsellor are confidential and cannot be shared with anyone else without your permission. All our Counsellors work to BACPs Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Currently our Counselling services are available to residents of the Uttlesford and Harlow districts.
Why would I need Counselling?
The world we live in today is very stressful and this can make us feel anxious, lonely, lacking in confidence, tearful, worried about the future and sometimes haunted by the past.
Counselling is very successfully used for treating:
- Mild depression
- Family difficulties
- Traumatic experiences
- Anger management
- Chronic illness
- Low self-esteem
- Work related stress
How do I access the service?
Pop along and talk to your GP and explain how you are feeling. If the GP feels that Counselling may be of help to you then he or she will make a referral to the West Essex Mind Counselling Service.
Alternatively call us on 01371 876641 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and leave your details. We will send you information on self-referral.
Where do I need to go?
We can provide your sessions from a variety of venues throughout Uttlesford and Harlow.
How many sessions do I have?
The Counselling package consists of six sessions but each person's needs are different, therefore some people may need fewer sessions and some may need more.
How much does Counselling cost?
