What is Counselling?

Counselling is the process by which the client is listened too in a non-judgemental way, in a confidential manner. It is a unique environment as the counsellor will not offer advice or opinions but use a range of techniques to help the client try and understand clearer what is happening to them and why they are feeling the way they do.

Clients tend to access counselling services when the problems or difficulties in their life have become impossible to solve on their own or from support of their family and friends. This is not a sign of failure or weakness. Counsellors are a neutral, independent person who is detached from all the people in the client’s life.

It is a huge step to admit that help is required from a counsellor, but making the first contact to JHD counselling services is the hardest but most beneficial rung on the ladder to feeling better.

Once making the leap to admitting the need to see a counsellor, a client will get the support needed to help understand their thoughts and feelings.

Why choose JHD Counselling Services?

This service will ensure that the client is matched with the best person to support them in their quest to understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

On making an enquiry or booking, Carol will put a client in touch with the chosen counsellor. Clients can request information about the counsellor that has been chosen to work with them in terms of their experience and qualifications.
