Free Confidential Counselling Service which is available weekly on the following dates/times:
- Wednesday afternoons
- Thursday evenings
All appointments are subject to availability and by appointment.
You can self-refer to the service or be referred from another service.
What you can expect from the Counselling sessions:
- An opportunity to explore your feelings and emotions
- The opportunity to reflect on your experiences
- The chance to consider alternative ways of doing things
The aim of the counselling service is to reduce feelings of confusion, and to empower you with the skills to make changes in your life (if you choose to do so). In these sessions, the counsellor will listen attentively and provide you with the time, empathy and respect you need to express your feelings. Doing so in this safe space may allow you to understand yourself from a different perspective. The counsellor will not give advice, but they will help you to make your own informed choices about your life.
We promise this service will be confidential.
