What is counselling like?

Counselling in SP:

  • Gives you a safe time and place to talk to someone who won't judge you
  • Helps you make sense of things and understand yourself better
  • Helps you resolve complicated feelings, or find ways to live with them
  • Helps you recognise unhelpful patterns in the way you think or act, and find ways to change them (if you want to)
  • Aims to help you improve your well-being

Will my counselling sessions be kept confidential?
