What to Expect in Your Counselling Sessions
Making the decision to attend counselling is a positive step and can offer support beyond that available from family or friends. It offers an environment in which you can express your feelings and gain deeper insight into your difficulties. Counselling sessions are also confidential, so you can talk about things you might not feel comfortable discussing with anyone else.
The aim is to help you find better ways to understand yourself, or to bring about changes to help you manage the way you think or behave to improve your mental and emotional well-being.
We provide counselling for individuals on a short or long term basis. This means you may either engage in counselling for as long as you require or choose to be allocated a set amount of sessions with specific goals in mind.
When you make contact with CHaT, you can discuss the counselling you prefer or if you are unsure you can ask when you come in for your assessment. We seek to ensure that everyone sees one of our counsellors within two weeks of enquiry.
