What is Counselling?
Counselling offers a safe and confidential space where a trained counsellor can help you explore your individual issues with warmth, empathy, acceptance and respect. Counselling is not about giving advice or telling you what to do. Counsellors do not have an agenda or a roadmap for your life. Counselling is about listening to you without judgement, enabling you to explore your thoughts and feelings, and helping you access resources within.
Counselling can help you gain new perspectives about yourself and support you in resolving your difficulties, as well as helping you find new ways of coping with a greater sense of control and choice in your life. Talking through your issues every week with a counsellor can help you come to terms with current challenges and identify a future where you are calmer, more confident and in charge of your own life.
During this time, all TAC’s counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists are currently offering online and telephone counselling and some are offering face-to-face therapy from our centres in Clapham and Tooting. Our therapists can offer support for a wide range of issues, using a number of approaches to therapy.
