About Us

We believe that talking to a therapist should be as accessible and 'normal' as taking your car to the garage, or your pet to the vet. Seeking counselling can often feel embarrassing, unnecessary, or like one of those things you'll do 'one day'. This is something we are trying to change.

Positive Futures Counselling can help you work through your problems, and shape a healthier, positive future. 

How can I benefit from counselling or psychotherapy?

 

Counselling and psychotherapy provides the opportunity to explore and deal with any confusing, unwelcome or unpleasant feelings you may experience. 

 

Counselling tends to be short term, usually for a minimum of 6 sessions, although some people may feel that just a few sessions is sufficient. Some clients choose to focus on a specific issue that they would like to work through, whilst others have deeper issues that need a longer-term focus.

 

Psychotherapy tends to be longer-term, and offers the opportunity to make sense of ourselves, our feelings and our way of being in the world. It can provide an understanding of how our earliest relationships and family patterns shape our behaviour later in life.  

 

The most important part of counselling or psychotherapy is that you feel safe and able to express yourself free from judgement. You need a counsellor you feel comfortable with, someone who 'gets you'. 

 

Our counsellor offers a warm, empathic, non-judgemental approach, and aims to make clients feel comfortable and able to speak freely. 

 

Positive Futures Counselling acknowledges that everyone's experience of life is

unique, and therefore there is no 'one approach' to dealing with individual issues. Sessions will be tailored to each unique person.
