Our counselling service
All of us struggle at times with issues or life events that trouble us and affect our wellbeing and our relationships. Life & Soul exists as a safe place to embark on a process of developing resilience, strength and personal growth.
We offer a holistic, integrative approach to counselling based on Person Centred and Psychodynamic approaches. We believe that all our lives are full of potential, possibilities and hope, and that every person accessing our service is worthy of love, belonging and connection. Our service is open to anyone regardless of faith or background.
Are you qualified?
We offer a safe and confidential service following the ethics and code of practice of COSCA (Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland). Counsellors within our service are trained to national standards and are given regular professional supervision.
As a service, Life & Soul are registered with counselling-directory.org.uk.
What's the process like?
Counselling works by offering a safe therapeutic relationship with the counsellor and within the relationship you will experience acceptance, honesty and a feeling of being valued.
How long does it take?
Effective counselling takes time and commitment to hard work. It involves exploring thoughts and behaviours, and experiencing feelings that may leave you feeling psychologically and emotionally stirred.
The usual contract offered is 8–10 weeks, after this a review appointment is made offering further sessions if required.
How much does it cost?
We seek to make our counselling as accessible as we can. Our counsellors volunteer their time and our pricing simply reflects our costs, and so we ask for £30 per session.
