Specialist Alcohol & Drugs Talking Therapies

talking1What is Talking Therapy?

Talking therapy, also known as counselling is a personal, one to one relationship in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings with someone who has the skill to help you. It is not an advice service.

Advice givers, whether friends or professionals, seldom know the real you, but they will tell you what they think is best for you or what has worked for themselves or other people. But as we are all individuals, the advice-giving approach does not always suit everyone.

Counsellors try to find out how you usually approach problems and what you have tried before. What worked or didn’t? What do you think might be useful? What is “just not on” for you? As you actually know more about yourself than anyone else does, the counsellor will ask you about you.

Our Talking Therapy Standards

We work hard to offer a good standard of service to all of our clients. To do this we ensure that our talking therapists:

  • receive appropriate training
  • receive case supervision
  • adhere to COSCA Statement of Ethics and Code of Practice
  • respect our clients as individuals
