Counselling

Counselling has been described as the art of listening constructively. Most counsellors do not aim to influence their clients in a particular direction, but to help them explore the options open to them.

Counselling provides an opportunity for a client to work towards living a more satisfying and resourceful way. It can be used to help a wide range of problems including:  trauma, stress, depression, eating disorders and relationship issues.

Counselling can be arranged via doctor’s referral with a qualified professional and sessions are held on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon at the surgery.

Peace Hospice Care is an IAPT provider, and counselling is available for those with mild to moderate anxiety and depression, those suffering from a life limiting illness, and bereaved people. Appointments can be arranged via self-referral. Sessions are held on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon at the surgery.
