Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which matter concerning your early years or adulthood you discuss. An aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy selects therapeutic approaches to suit your preferences and the issues you encounter. It explores your subjective experience and choices. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-understanding.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It considers your thoughts, feelings and significant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you develop or find suitable ways of coping.
