Individual Counselling

We provide professional private individual counselling, psychotherapy in Leicester and online for those aged 16+. Sessions are usually weekly but can be more or less frequent where required.

Each individual counselling session lasts 50 minutes (fees). The duration of the therapy depends on what difficulties you bring to your sessions. 

Why individual counselling?

For a variety of reasons, life can be a struggle at times; sometimes overwhelming. It takes immense courage to explore the things that we find most difficult. Past experiences can impact our behaviour, responses and relationships. So by thinking together we can help you to discover why certain behaviours and responses arise and encourage new ways of responding for the future.

You may want to delve deep into past experiences. You may be curious to explore more recent events. There are many ways to gain understanding of the things we find unsettling.

We believe that you are the expert of you and in your ability to explore and evolve your understanding of yourself and your situation. We will help you learn to manage and explore your difficulties in an appropriately contained and supportive, yet challenging environment.

Developing a relationship of shared trust and respect is essential for effective individual counselling and psychotherapy, so it is important that there is a comfortable connection between client and counsellor.
