What is counselling?

Jacquelyn Clarke

Counselling helps individuals explore their feelings or circumstances without fear of being judged. It can be offered to individuals, couples and families, assisting with a range of difficulties you may be facing, such as:.

  • Day-to-day stress
  • Depression, anxiety and panic attacks
  • Bereavement and trauma
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Physical and mental abuse
  • Self-harm
  • Anger and destructive behaviour
  • Addiction
  • Gastric weight loss surgery

Sessions are one-to-one, last up to an hour, and you are free to discuss anything, knowing your own interpretation of the problem is significant and valid.

Boundaries are identified and a working relationship is built between client and counsellor – achieving balance and a greater understanding of the client’s world.

Frequency of consultations required depends upon the severity of the problem.

About your counselling session

Every client needs different support, so counselling consultations and programmes are structured around the needs of the individual.

In the first session, Jacquelyn will discuss with you what’s happening, looking at each issue in turn.

We’ll then work together at a pace that suits you to find solutions that resolve conflict and bring about positive change.

Consultations take place at Magnolia House Therapy in a quiet, tranquil setting where situations can be discussed privately and in confidence.

However, if you’re unable to attend we offer consultations on phone, email and live chat.

All of our counsellors follow the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists code of conduct, and are regularly supervised to ensure a safe setting.

Please contact us to find out more, email: info@magnoliahousetherapy.co.uk or call 07916 178 823
