Two Dolls Who Act as People Talking Face to Face - Types of Services

Individual face to face sessions

In counselling sessions, the client can explore various aspects of their life and feelings, talking about them freely and openly in a way that is not always possible with friends or family. Pent up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief and embarrassment can become very intense and overwhelming. Counselling offers an opportunity to explore these feelings, with the view of making them easier to understand.

We can help the client to examine in detail the behaviour or situations which are proving troublesome and to show the client that is possible to initiate some change in themselves so that they can change their reaction to their triggers. The counsellor will help the client to look at the options open to them and help them to decide what is best for them to take back control of their life, their emotions, their behaviour.

Skype Sessions

Skype counselling is a wonderful alternative to traditional face to face counselling sessions. Like face to face counselling, the counsellor will be able to observe your body language while the session progresses to give you the tools you need to take back your control of your life, your behaviour and your emotions.

Sometimes it is hard to leave your home. Whether it is part of an illness – physical or mental health – or whether you want to connect with a counsellor of your choice who lives too far away, skyping allows you to connect with us at a mutual time all from the comfort of your own home or chosen location.

Using skype, the counsellor can pay attention to body language, voice tone etc, and is able to build rapport as easily as in face to face counselling.

Childhood and adolescence are periods of rapid development and change.
