Counselling will give you an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in confidence, to talk through your situation and focus on your needs and aspirations.
A counsellor will listen and help you make sense of the difficulties you are experiencing and find a way forward.
Our aim is not to provide you with quick and easy answers, but to enable you to find your own.
Is Counselling For You?
Many have found Quiet Waters' counselling helpful in any number of situations, both male and female, individuals and couples.
Although each person is unique and no two circumstances the same, we can help with most difficulties, including:
- Abuse - emotional, physical and sexual
- Anxiety, panic attacks and stress
- Depression and suicidal thoughts
- Difficulties in intimate and family relationships
- Feelings of hurt and rejection
- Loss and bereavement
- Poor self-image and anger
- Spiritual issues.
If we are unable to help you, we will endeavour to assist you in finding the help you are looking for.
What Happens When I Get There?
Your first appointment will allow you to meet with your counsellor to discuss the reasons you are seeking help and to explore what counselling has to offer you. If you decide Quiet Waters can offer the help you are looking for, we will enter into a counselling agreement with you.
During counselling you will have the opportunity to review your progress with your counsellor on a regular basis and to adjust the number of sessions planned.
Regular attendance for counselling is an important part of your commitment to the counselling process - especially if the issues being discussed become difficult for you.
How Much Does It Cost?
There is no charge for the counselling offered.
Each counselling session, however, costs Quiet Waters around £25, including those cancelled at short notice. Gifts and contributions of all amounts, large or small, are therefore welcome from those who feel they have benefited from the service and wish to see it continue to help others.
How To Make An Appointment
Appointments can be arranged by calling our Practice Manager on 01324 670 600 between 9:00am and 1:00pm on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 9:00 - 5:00 on a Tuesday.
Quiet Waters provides a confidential counselling service based on Christian commitment, insight and values for individuals and couples. The service is open to all, regardless of faith, gender, ethnic origin or life choices without preference or discrimination of any kind.
We recognise that there are people for whom the counselling offered may not be appropriate, for example those struggling with personality disorders, chronic addictions, or serious mental health problems. In such cases clients will be referred to more appropraite souces of help and support.
We have a team of experienced and suitably qualified counsellors who receive regular supervision and support in their counselling work. Every effort will be made to offer you the counsellor best able to help you in your circumstances.
Our counsellors work within the Association of Christian Counsellor's Code of Ethics and Practice.
