Counselling - Oakspring Health Clinic

Counselling is a means of getting support and help with issues that may be causing people considerable disturbance and distress in their everyday lives. 

By developing a close working relationship with a trained counsellor, you can find ways to express thoughts, feelings, concerns and fears in a safe and confidential environment. This process helps to explore significant relationships and allows clients to understand patterns of behaviour so empowering them to take responsibility and make changes where necessary.   This can lead to significant changes of perspective as they work towards personal aspirations.

All the Counsellors working at Oakspring Health Clinic are accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and so work within their ethical framework regarding confidentiality within the practice.

Problems that can be particularly helped by counselling include:

  • Anxiety, Stress
  • Depression
  • Bereavement or loss
  • Relationship issues
  • Low self-esteem
  • Issues arising from Trauma or Abuse
  • Unresolved childhood issues and Bullying.
