Josie Nicholson Dip, MBACP (Accred) UKRCP Registered Independent Counsellor
Counselling is now accepted as a form of healing alongside other techniques. It is a process whereby a trained counsellor helps you by purposeful conversation in an understanding atmosphere.
The aim of counselling is to give you the opportunity to explore your concerns and feelings, discover what might be the underlying causes and to clarify ways of living more effectively and to move towards a greater sense of well-being. Counselling is a collaborative process that involves the development of a unique, confidential helping relationship.
Counselling does not involve giving direct advice, a counsellor is trained to help you arrive at your own informed decisions and find your own answers.
