What Is Counselling?
Counselling is a talking therapy that offers you the opportunity to talk about your concerns and difficult feelings you encounter within a safe and confidential environment with a Counsellor who will listen to you carefully and help you explore your situation.
Counselling is a process in which people seek when they wish to change something within their lives or they perhaps wish to explore in more detail their thoughts and feelings.
A Counsellor will encourage you to talk about the concerns and difficulties you are facing in order to uncover any root causes and to help you identify your specific ways of thinking.
The counsellor will help you create a plan that is suitable for you to help you reconcile your difficulties and they will also help you to discover other coping mechanisms.
MACP provides a self-referral system. If you are interested in receiving counselling, you can contact our office on:
