How can counselling help?

Counselling can help with a wide variety of difficult life situations:

• Feelings of emptiness, hopelessness or not being able to       cope.
• Depression, anxiety or confusion.
• Difficulties with marriage or family relationships.
• Times of illness and bereavement.
• Times of crisis and stress.
• Experiencing feelings or memories that concern us.
• Feelings of hurt or rejection from past or present                  relationships.
• Awareness of behaving in ways which are destructive to ourselves or others.

These are only some examples, and whether your problem seems insurmountable, or relatively small compared to others, we are willing to give you the time you need.

About counselling:

Counselling is not about giving advice and does not necessarily provide quick and easy answers. Counselling is based on listening and enabling you to make sense of life situations which may seem unbearable. It is the process of helping you separate the strands, to see clearly where you can take action for change, and, when you have to, accept that some things remain difficult. Counselling helps you locate the resources you have within you, however hidden they may have become. Most of all, perhaps counselling provides the time for you to concentrate on your needs.

About us:

ACT Counselling Services are staffed by male and female counsellors who are Christians, and work on a voluntary basis. We offer our service to anyone regardless of beliefs, background or gender. We abide by the ethical codes of the BACP and ACC.

We are open to working with faith/spiritual issues, but only if this is your wish.

Counselling  starts with a free assessment where we will discuss what issues you want to bring to counselling, confidentiality and your availability. There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions. After the assessment, you will be allocated to a counsellor when one becomes available.

We offer a completely confidential service within the boundaries of the law and ethical guidelines.

We are now able to offer couples counselling
