Welcome to Stepping Stones Counselling & Coaching
You have taken the first step to changing your situation and this can often be the hardest step and one where you might feel anxious or uncertain. At Stepping Stones we aim to provide a safe place where you can explore your current situation and look at the direction you want to head.
How can we help?
Counselling helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. For some people, just the process of telling their story to a counsellor, and being listened to, is helpful.
Counselling is a journey and together we will plan that journey ensuring your needs and safety are attended too.
We offer flexibility that allows for a variety of counselling formats, including:
Face-to-face – This is when you make an appointment with a counsellor to see them in person. Face-to-face sessions are one of the more popular therapy formats because they provide an opportunity for you to react to any emotions that arise there and then. Sessions are mobile for your convenience and flexibility.
Telephone counselling – For some, telephone counselling offers a helpful alternative to face-to-face counselling. This involves talking to your counsellor over the phone instead of in person. This form of counselling can be particularly useful for those too busy to attend face-to-face sessions, and can be carried out in the comfort of your own home.
Online counselling – Some people prefer not to physically speak to a counsellor at all, utilizing technology and emailing their counsellor instead. This form of counselling allows you to take the time to think through what you wish to discuss, and many find the act of physically writing their issues down cathartic. Online counselling also offers you the chance to protect your anonymity.
At the time of booking please advise what counselling option is best suited to your needs.
