Counselling and Psychotherapy
Often referred to as 'the talking cure'. Psychological therapy will help you to explore the ways in which the past, your current situation and your concerns about the future might be affecting you. A skilled Counselling Psychologist will not tell you what to do or give you advice, however they will be able to help you to feel more in control of your situation, manage stress, and support you in the decisions you make about positive change
