About CounsellingWorx

There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding counselling. It is often viewed as a place that people go when they feel they are losing their mind or have suffered a life changing event such as death or trauma. Counselling is able to support in these situations, but is also about providing a safe space for a person to go when they have a lot going on in their minds/lives and need some time to make sense of it.

We all face tough situations every day and normally we manage just fine, however there are times when life can get too much and our mind and body tell us that they are struggling to understand and can’t quite process what has happened. This is where counselling can help, as you have a space, where you can sit uninterrupted to try to make sense of your world, and the therapist is there to provide support, not answers (although when a counsellor and a client work together, answers are often found).

Counselling

Key Principles

CounsellingWorx is founded upon these key principles.

Relationship

The counselling relationship needs to be built on trust. Trust is fundamental from the client and therapist’s perspective. The client needs to feel comfortable in order to be open and honest about their thoughts/situation and the therapist needs to trust that through the client/therapist’s work together, effective long lasting change for the client can be found.

Space Sharing

The counselling room/environment is shared by both the client and the therapist. CounsellingWorx offers the client warmth, empathy, honesty and acceptance, believing that by offering these qualities within the counselling room, the counselling process will begin. We also recognise that sometimes people are more comfortable in their own surroundings so our therapists will come to you in person, over the phone, or via the internet, if this is something that you feel will help you engage in counselling.

Person Centred

CounsellingWorx offers client-centred therapy which means that through the counselling process, the client will learn to trust their own decision making processes, become more open to new experiences and learn strategies which the client can continue to use long after therapy has finished.

How do I find the right therapist for me?

Finding the right counsellor for you can feel overwhelming. There are many factors to consider such as cost or location, but there are also other aspects that may not be obvious such as confidentiality, qualifications and integrity, which can also impact upon a successful client/counsellor relationship. Being aware of what you are looking for in a counsellor can help you find the right counsellor for you.

Abby really helped our whole family to understand what the issues were and then helped us to work through them – the impacts have been very real.

I have walked away from previous counsellors and sessions feeling like I was wasting my money, Abby was different, she was calm, relaxed, courteous and non-judgmental. I feel that she understood how I was feeling and I always walked away feeling that our sessions had been productive

I feel really lucky to have found a counsellor who listens and understands

Abby really helped me to figure out and have an understanding of what I needed out of life, how to live and not just exist

I can finally see clearly and feel a lot happier

Abby gave me focus and week by week, I gained some focus and structure back in my life
