Counselling

 

We have a small counselling service through which we provide one to one counselling for people over the age of 18 who may be experiencing some difficulty in coping with life.

Clients share any issues of concern with a counsellor whose role is to facilitate the therapy in ways which respect their values and personal resources. The objectives of each counselling relationship vary according to the individual’s needs.

Issues that an individual may wish to address may include (but is not limited to);

  • Lack of self-confidence and poor assertion skills;
  • Bereavement and loss;
  • Relationship/family problems/conflict;
  • Domestic abuse

Our Counsellors

Our counsellors are qualified to, or working towards a Diploma in Counselling (Level 4). They all work within their own ethical framework of the organisation they are a member of (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); National Counselling Society). Plymouth & District Mind are registered members of the BACP and follow Mind’s Guidelines for Good Practice. Our counsellors are empathic, non-judgemental, non-directive and respect each person’s capacity for self-determination.

Referrals

Our counselling service is limited so we are currently only accepting self-referrals.

Counselling Cost

In order to meet the costs of longer term support such as counselling, we charge a small fee of £10 per counselling session. The initial assessment is free.
