Counselling improves health and wellbeing and empowers personal growth. It is available to anyone who feels the need to talk with someone outside of their family or friends without fear of being judged. You do not need to be referred for counselling by your GP.
Engaging in counselling is a personal journey and each session is your 'space'. There is no 'one size fits all' as every person is unique and every person's issues or goal may be different. All that is required is a willingness to take a closer look at the things that are troubling you and to be as open and honest as you can be. Some sessions may feel challenging, some may feel liberating and like a weight is starting to lift.

It's all down to personal preference and you get to choose. Many like working by video link because it saves valuable time when considering travel. You may also feel more relaxed in your own home and if you choose to receive counselling online, it also means that you are not limited by geography when choosing your Counsellor. If you'd like to work online, you will be guided through the process if it is something you are unfamiliar with.
Equally, people like the idea of a face to face connection – maybe home isn't a quiet or private space and you'd rather have that dedicated independent space in which to talk. Clients do comment on a feeling of safety and peacefulness when in the counselling room and for some it just feels more personal.
Whether you are seeking counselling just for you or as part of a couple, take some time to decide which you might prefer or if you'd like to discuss it, don't hesitate to call.
