Counselling offers you a safe, supportive, confidential space to talk through whatever difficulties you are facing, and to explore difficult thoughts and feelings.

Through listening non-judgmentally to you, our role is to enable you to better understand your thoughts and feelings, and to support you to find a way to move forwards.

People seek counselling for many reasons including:

– anxiety
– relationship difficulties
– abuse
– stress
– low self-esteem
– depression
– loss or bereavement
– parenting issues
– spirituality or faith issues

Session details

We offer weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes, which will continue for up to 18 sessions.

We are currently offering all sessions via Zoom.

Confidentiality

All personal information shared during counselling is confidential to the service.

No information will be disclosed to another person without your consent, unless in exceptional circumstances, as a requirement of a Court of Law or if it was believed that you were of serious harm to yourself or another person.

First Steps

There will be an Initial Assessment where you will:
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions about what we can offer and consider together if us working together would be right for you
  • Outline what has brought you to counselling, and what you hope to gain
  • Agree a number of weekly sessions, and a regular time to review the counselling
  • Assess your needs
  • Agree a weekly donation for your counselling

 

Testimonials

Release Client

Counselling has changed my life and allowed me to see situations in a very different light. In general my friendships and relationships are healthier because of the impact that counselling has had on my life, and I feel much more hopeful for the future.

Release Client

Now the counselling has come to an end, I find that I am in a very different place than when I started...The counselling has been invaluable and I am so grateful to Ellen for helping me reflect on, understand and move forward from past experiences in a way that was always supportive and at a pace that I was able to cope with.

Thank-you – I am certain that my counselling experience will have a positive impact on the next phase of my life.

There was a very good rapport with my counsellor which helped enormously in establishing a relationship of trust within a fixed amount of time. The counselling sessions progressed in an organic way and I feel blessed by the help received from my counsellor and Release when it was most needed.
