What is Counselling?
The BACP website describes Counselling in the following way :
"Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing."*BPAC website
Options counsellors are professionally trained in a range of counselling backgrounds. The approach adopted will be agreed during the initial session or specific to an individual issue.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Person centred
- Transactional Analysis (TA)
A non-judgemental, nurturing, supportive and encouraging approach is used by our counsellors in accordance with the standards and ethics of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
