No sorry, we are unable to provide between-sessions emergency support. If you need urgent assistance between sessions, please refer to the contact numbers on the Resources page.

Should I see a doctor if I am experiencing anxiety or stress?
Yes, it is important to consult your GP. Anxiety and stress have a tangible effect upon your body, and your doctor can assess your overall health.

How many sessions will I need?
This depends on the individual and the complexity of their needs, and is your decision. Periodic maintenance sessions can be organised when recovery goals have been achieved.

What is your counselling approach?
Evidence-based methods with proven efficacy, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy and applied relaxation training.

Shouldn’t I be able to handle this on my own?
Seeking help is a good move, and is not a sign of weakness. It is a courageous step to seek help. Sadly, many people try to struggle through on their own, which can lead to mental and physical deterioration. Talking to a therapist is proactive – benefitting yourself and those who care about you.
