Counselling and Psychotherapy

This is a talking therapy service, where we will explore in a safe, supportive environment what is troubling you. You will be listened to and supported in finding ways forward.

Welcome to Stepping Stones Psychology

who is it for?

For some time now you might have been struggling to make sense of how you are feeling and wish to talk things through with a professional. Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you see your thoughts from a different perspective and help you finding it easier to cope in everyday life.


What issues will we work on and what will be the outcome?

You will be better at expressing and managing your emotions, including anger. It can also help you feeling more confident. The issues we may be working on can be difficulties with your mood and some behaviours you are not happy with, and want to explore and work on . We can help with a wide range of issues, e.g.:

• Mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder
• An upsetting physical health condition, such as infertility
• A difficult life event, such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress
• Difficult emotions – for example, low self-esteem or anger
• Other issues, such as sexual identity
• Loss, bereavement and grief


What will we be doing in these sessions?

We will do counselling or therapeutic work where I will use an integrative approach. This means combining elements from different approaches, depending on what is most appropriate for your specific needs and goals. The approaches can be a combination of:

• Person-centred/Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
• Psychodynamic Approach
• Solution-Focused Therapy
• Psycho-education
In Session 6 we will review your progress. Sometimes clients wish to move to Tier 3 at this point. Again, we will review whether this will be suitable and discuss it further. Should we both be happy to move to the next stage we will do this after Session 6.
