what is counselling?

Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be troubling you.

A counsellor is someone who has been fully trained to support you through this process.

You can bring whatever you like to counselling - current worries, things that happened in the past, or changes you’d like to make to be happier and healthier.

How will counselling make me feel?

Counselling is a very personal process.

Sometimes things that are painful or difficult may come up for you, so you may go through a period when things feel more troubling than when you began counselling. This is a normal part of the process of working out how to feel well and you’ll be supported by your counsellor throughout.

Counselling can…

  • make you feel positive and engaged with your life
  • help you understand your motivations and actions
  • give you a language to describe how you are feeling and how you make sense of your world
  • help you to understand and communicate better with other people

Why might counselling be right for me?

Counsellors are highly skilled at helping you to explore difficult thoughts, feelings, behaviours and situations so that you can make changes and lead a more fulfilling life.

Sometimes it’s not easy to talk to family and friends about these things. It can be easier to talk to someone else to get another perspective.

What does resolve do?

We provide a confidential safe place where you can talk to a qualified counsellor by telephone, video call or face-to-face.

You can choose to…

  • work with a counsellor over several weeks or months
  • have fewer, shorter, more focused sessions

You can discuss the options with the counsellor at your first session.

how much does it cost?

Sessions cost £50 which covers the cost of the room and the counsellor, and supports our charity, Health in Mind.

Who are your counsellors?

All of our counsellors are fully qualified and carefully recruited.

They work within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland (COSCA) or United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) ethical framework.
