Counselling Information

INFORMATION ABOUT COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY

 

What is Counselling and how can it help you?

  “It may be learning something new or relearning something one has

   forgotten; it may be learning how to learn or may be unlearning;

   paradoxically, it may even be learning what one already knows”

   Corsini 1989

 

 Counselling can provide a safe place in which to talk things over in

  confidence and without judgment. It is an opportunity to work through a present

  crisis or past trauma and learn more about yourself as an individual.

 Are you in a difficult relationship, feel depressed and lonely, are you ill/disabled

  or caring for someone who is, recently divorced or bereaved, have suffered

  an assault, affected by an addiction or eating disorders, feel trapped or

  helpless, or just want to make a fresh start?  Counselling may help

  you to understand your situation more clearly and allow feelings

  greater acceptance.  Counselling offers you a time to talk about what

  is important to you.   

 

The difference between Counselling & Psychotherapy

It is well accepted that the terms Counselling and Psychotherapy are

used synonymously and it is often difficult to separate the two ways of

working.    A very simplistic explanation maybe that  ‘Counselling’  focuses

on present issues, tends to be more short term and involves

conscious awareness.   Whereas ‘Psychotherapy’ focuses on the past,

tends to be longer term and involves more unconscious processing.

 

Confidentiality

What is discussed will be treated with respect, discretion and is

essentially confidential, however there are certain situations

where strict confidentiality will not be possible. These include;

where I consider you to a danger to yourself or others, or you

disclose a serious criminal offence.

Short notes are made after each session to record attendance and the

progress of therapy.  These notes may also be used anonymously to

aid in the clinical supervision of my work, in order for me to improve

my service.     Your attendance at the sessions implies acceptance

of this situation.  Please discuss any uncertainties with me.  

     

General Information

I have a purpose built consulting room in Worcester from where I

offer counselling appointments during office hours and on some

weekday evenings.

           

I conform to the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) codes of

Ethics and practice. 

My work is regularly supervised by a very experienced and well respected

Chartered Clinical Psychologist.

 

Terms

Payment is required after each session and I am happy to receive cash or

cheque.

Please note that I will have to charge the full cost of the session for

any missed appointments with less than 24 hours prior notice.       

Each session lasts 50 minutes.   

Thank you.
