Counselling in Southend
Look after your mind as well as your body
No matter where you are in life or what you've been through, everyone can benefit from counselling.
At its core, counselling is simply having a conversation with a trained therapist in a safe and frank environment. You talk, your counsellor listens and interjects whenever necessary, and together you steadily work your way towards the root of whatever is hurting you and come up with ways to deal with it.
Our counsellor at the Sports Rehab Clinic, Diane, helps her clients develop a healthy internal dialogue through her flexible approach, letting them talk things through on their own accord and stepping in when necessary.
Frequently Asked questions
How often should I see a counsellor?
Most issues are significantly improved within 6 to 10 sessions. Each session lasts a therapeutic hour, which is 50 minutes. Sessions are advised to be weekly for maximum effectiveness, but fortnightly sessions can be accommodated if necessary.
What is counselling for?
People come to counselling for all sorts of reasons – Self-esteem issues, family or relationship issues, anxiety, depression, sleep issues, trauma, addictions, or simply a nagging feeling that something is ‘off'.
What can I expect in the first session?
The first session will be relatively short. Once I go through the confidentiality clauses, we can get to know each other, and gauge how comfortable you feel with me and whether you feel we would be a good fit for one another. For CYP (Children & young people), I ask that parent/s attend for the first part of the session so all understand how safeguarding and confidentiality work in these sessions.
