WHAT IS COUNSELLING
Psychological distress can take many forms and have varying effects on our lives; identity, self-worth, anxiety, fear, sadness, depression, loss, relationships, family, friends, work, social life, parenting and day to day tasks can all be effected, from a little to a lot. Having the opportunity to talk through your thoughts and feelings about your understanding of your experience in a supportive, non-judgemental and confidential environment with a highly trained, skilled therapist can often be of benefit to an individual before, during or after those moments and that, in essence, is counselling.
WHAT DOES COUNSELLING DO
At Charles Flint Counselling we have therapists who have worked with children, young people and adults of varying age, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference and religion. Working to enhance the client’s awareness of their feelings and enabling them to explore their thoughts to discover their own solutions for their distress, in whatever form that takes. We work to empower our clients to find that solution, working at a pace that suits the needs of each client and their unique experience of life. Whilst there may be similarities, each client’s life is a unique blend of many factors; development, family/ primary caregivers, society, culture, ethnicity, education, events and experience. This very personal interaction provides everyone with their own unconscious expectations and needs, from others and of themselves; feelings, thoughts, rights, wrongs, values, beliefs, understandings and ideas about who they are and the world around them. However, some times those needs and expectations can become problematic and cause psychological distress; a lack of understanding and questions, that can lead to thoughts and feelings of confusion, shame, fears, sadness, anger and doubt.
