INFORMATION FOR REFERRERS
Although the counselling offered draws upon a range of theoretical models (for example, cognitive behavioural, humanistic and NLP), we use mainly the psychodynamic approach. This explores the effects of past experience and, in particular, primary relationships on the client’s current distress, using insights from the client/counsellor relationship to enlighten and inform the work.
Clients may self-refer, or be referred by their GP or other agency (for example, employer, religious leader, teacher) on a funded or self-funding basis. Fees are negotiable, and in special circumstances (when funds are available) the Financial Assistance Programme enables us to offer professional counselling to selected applicants who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
If you would like to meet a representative from the agency, to discuss further any situations where you feel that a professional intervention could help, or need more information, please contact the Centre Co-ordinator.
