Counselling for Children and Adults

The aim of counselling is to provide you, the client, with a confidential opportunity to explore personal and relational issues in emotional safety. The counsellors’ role is to help you through this process without judgement. The counsellor may, on occasions, give information or offer suggestions. During counselling, we set goals agreed between the client and the therapist. The client agrees to work towards the agreed goals. If at any time the counsellor feels they can no longer help you, the counsellor will offer to refer you to someone who can.

Sessions last approximately 50 minutes and will be every week typically on the same day and time, suitable to you and within 3 Counties hours of operation. 3 Counties Counselling sessions can take place at clients homes, colleges or other suitable premises.

We ask that you commit to 4 sessions before realistically evaluating the effectiveness of therapy. After this, the contract can be renewed verbally for additional sessions, and a review is given every when appropriate. Part of the review process is to determine if more sessions are necessary in order to reach your goals. If both therapist and client collaboratively agree that more sessions are necessary, they contract for more sessions (usually 3–8) before ending therapy or reviewing the process again.
