About Services Offered.

About Counselling Psychology:

Counselling Psychology is counselling that is rooted in psychological research. It is practised by Counsellors or Psychologists with a Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology who have been trained practically and academically to tailor the most appropriate counselling model to you and your presenting issues. The training is of a high standard set down by the British Psychological Society.

About Cognitive-behaviour Therapy (CBT):

Cognitive-behaviour therapy looks at your thoughts, feelings and behaviour and how they interact in the development of a problem and the maintenance of an emotional disorder. CBT aims to give you skills to identify thoughts and attitudes that are influencing your feelings and behaviour. CBT is useful for anxiety disorders, depression and anger management.

About Work Coaching:

Work coaching explores your present situation looking at where you are and how to reach your goals. Sometimes people are prevented from achieving their work potential due to low self-esteem, limiting beliefs and anxiety. Work coaching helps you to increase your confidence to tackle work stress and also cope more effectively with redundancy.


Small group workshops are offered on a regular basis covering issues such as 'Life after Redundancy', Confidence Building, Assertiveness and Managing your Mood. For details of next course please e-mail or telephone.
