What is Counselling
Counselling is a talk based therapy where you can discuss in a safe, friendly and confidential environment your concerns and issues.
Mental health, relationships, career, and general every day stress can be resolved through counselling.
We provide counselling which is a modality for working with people who are struggling with in depth mental and emotional health conditions such as extreme long term anxiety, depression, stress or trauma.
General Counselling typically deals with issues that are relatively easy to resolve on the conscious level whereas psychotherapy is more intensive and extensive and examines a person’s psychological history from birth.
Our therapist Natalee Cooper is a counselling psychotherapist and certified clinical trauma professional and can support you in both these areas and will help you understand yourself & any conditions and provide treatment to help you manage or heal & live a fulfilled life.
Counselling generally refers to a short-term consultation of around 3-6 weeks while psychotherapy usually refers to a longer-term treatment potentially years.
A referral will be made if our counsellor thinks you need the support of another professional such as a psychologist or doctor and may continue to see you while you also see other therapists.
Note a counsellor & psychotherapist is not always a psychologist. For more information on the differences between these therapists you can read more here.
