Step one:

Once you have decided that Coastal Counselling is right for you please make an initial enquiry via the contact us form giving your name and a brief description of what you are seeking counselling for. We aim to respond as quickly as possible but please be aware there may be periods of time there is a delay.

Step two:

If we are able to support you with your needs we will send potential clients an information pack via email which we need you to return fully completed. 

Step three:

Once we receive your completed form we will contact you to arrange an Initial Appointment at a time that is suitable and convenient. This appointment is to discuss and establish if counselling is right for you and for you to see if you would like to continue to work with us.

(Payment is required when making the booking).

Step four:

Attend your appointment.

We understand that starting counselling may feel daunting and intimidating and this is usual for a lot of people. 

If at the end of your initial appointment you decide you would like to and are able to commit to regular counselling, your counsellor will arrange further appointments with you.

Counselling

Sometimes we can experiences difficult events that have a profound lasting effect on our lives or perhaps we may have found ourselves feeling a little lost, hopeless and unsure of ourselves. We may have been struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or a combination of difficulties for a number of years and feel now is the time to address these issues. 

 

Although seeking help can feel very daunting at first, it is usual to feel nervous, by working with a qualified counsellor we can learn to explore and gain understanding around the things we are struggling with. We can find new ways of looking at situations and work towards living a life with more fulfilment not controlled by these issues. Counselling can help us process and move on from the past and rebuild the life we dream of living. 

At Coastal Counselling we put the client at the centre of our work to ensure you are supported throughout each step of your journey.
