Our Therapy

What is Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy?


Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy are types of talking therapy offered face to face, in a safe, private and confidential setting. With a counsellor, you can discuss your thoughts and feelings and explore how they might be affecting your life. 

The counsellor uses elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory and a 

Person-Centred Approach and with your collaboration, supports you to find a way of feeling better.

Why Do People Seek Counselling?


Anyone can attend counselling; you don’t need to have a diagnosis from a G.P. Many people start counselling because they “feel that their life is a mess”, “they are feeling anxious or low” or more serious matters such as getting help with a recent bereavement or life-changing event.

Often clients feel that they benefit from the opportunity to discuss their life with someone impartial rather than a family member. Perhaps because they may have been feeling troubled and cannot see a clear way through their difficulty and would like support while they make the changes they want.

For Businesses


We work with you to create bespoke training for your workforce designed to reduce the stigma of mental illness and engage employees in looking after their physical and mental health.

We train your workforce to be Mental Health First Aiders through the accredited programme developed by Mental Health First Aid England
