Counselling psychology enables positive change within an individual through taking a holistic approach based in psychological theory. Our counselling psychologists work with children and young people with a broad range of psychological, mental and emotional difficulties within education settings through a range of therapeutic approaches.
Counselling psychologists work with both adults and children across a diverse range of issues, such as bereavement, relationships, mental health problems, etc, and aim to explore the underlying causes behind them.
Our counselling psychology services are provided by HCPC registered counselling psychologists and supervised assistant psychologists.
