Counselling provides the opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings, to identify worries and concerns, to create self-awareness and develop coping mechanisms to help bring about change. 

Our person-centred, integrative counselling service means our counsellors can work with you using a range of tools and techniques to help you, such as:

Sand Play

Through the creation of a three-dimensional picture in sand, a client works to gain greater insight into what is going on for them in relationship to self and others, to understand their behaviours and relationship dynamics, to identify where change would be beneficial and to explore how such change may be brought about.

Thought Field Therapy (TFT) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

TFT and EFT uses the stimulation/tapping of acupressure points to address negative emotions, physical pain, repetitive thoughts etc.

Creative Interventions

These include art/painting, music, poetry, letter writing and memory boxes. 

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP can be effective in dealing with phobias, depression, replacing negative behaviours and habits with positive ones helping you to cope better.

Time Line Therapy (TLT)

TLT works to release the effects of past negative experiences such as anger, depression, sadness, anxiety and chronic fear allowing a client to gain emotional control over their life and work towards attainable goals. 


Exploring a deeper awareness of our emotions and finding creative ways to deal with concerns.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful thoughts, behaviours and emotions.
