Adults

 As a key element of the Wellness Centre, Life & Soul offers counselling for adults as individuals.

We live in turbulent times, on the edge of uncertainty, and in these difficult times many of our relationships are being shattered by persistent stress.  At Life & Soul we have a vision to strengthen families, empower individuals and help people become more resourceful in order to weather the storms of life.  Our hope is that through counselling you will be helped to live a resilient life.

The Wellness Centre is an organisational member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Couples

 We also offer support to those looking for help in their relationships

Relationships can be difficult.  Whether you are in a new relationship or a longer-term relationship and no matter how big or small your issues are, our counsellors provide a supportive and confidential space to help you find a way through any struggles you may be facing.

All our couples’ counsellors are trained to national standards of counselling training and hold a minimum qualification of a Diploma in Counselling alongside a Certificate in Couples’ Counselling.

Children

 BeMe is our counselling service for children and young people, aged 6 - 16.

Counselling is a skilled way of helping children and young people with personal and developmental issues and difficulties.  Through play therapy, talking or working with art and other creative materials, counselling gives individuals an opportunity to explore and discover ways to live in a more satisfying and resourceful way.  It offers the young person the opportunity to increase self-awareness and develop personal resources and understanding of their own problems as well as cultivating strategies to cope with change.

BeMe counsellors are trained to national standards of counselling training and hold a minimum qualification of a Diploma in Counselling alongside a Certificate in working therapeutically with children and young people.
