Introduction to Counselling

What is Counselling?

Being self-aware and having the capability to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding is part of being human. Due to this, there is scope for the way we think to become a problem and to affect our emotions and our ability to live as we would like to. With the advancement of science and technology, we now have a clearer understanding of the human brain and how it functions.

Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained professional listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.  It is a process that psychologically empowers you to seize back control of your life, whilst working through issues and problems that may have caused you to lose self-esteem, as well as confidence in your own abilities. Counselling will increase self-awareness and a sense of well-being and is often the first step individuals take on their path to discovering a more positive life.


What can Counselling help with?

Counselling can be useful for anyone who wants to explore the way they’re feeling or thinking further, as well as for anyone experiencing a problem or issue they need help to resolve.

Counselling can help you cope with many issues, including:


At Greenwich Wellness Rooms our Counsellors specialise in their own fields of expertise allowing us to support all clients seeking help and guidance.

What does a counselling session entail?

At your first session, you will be encouraged to talk about any dissatisfaction you may be

experiencing in your life and your feelings and emotions. The Counsellor will listen and support without judging or criticising, but will also ask questions to determine the best course of action to follow.  All the information shared at the session is confidential.

It is a Counsellors role to actively listen to your problems, and mentally challenge them to encourage you to seek a solution to your concerns or issues. Counsellors at Greenwich Wellness Rooms provide a supportive service that creates a confidential space where you can freely voice your feelings.

Counselling is generally one to one and takes place in the calm and relaxed well-being centre we have created at Greenwich Wellness rooms, but it can also be held via Skype or Zoom.

You may be advised to have a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course.  The follow on appointments will generally be on a weekly basis, but the therapist will make regular progress reviews and provide you with a recommendation.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress, but whilst building a good relationship with your counsellor they are supporting you and giving you the tools to improve your future.
