Personal and Continued Care Counselling

What does a Counsellor do?

A counsellor provides a safe, non-judgemental space for clients to talk freely about their life concerns and personal issues. Through listening and encouraging clients to explore their individual situation in greater depth, a counsellor enables clients to reduce any inner confusion or worry and increase self-understanding. A counsellor does not give advice or provide a client with any direct solutions to problems, but facilitates the development of a client’s self-awareness and sense of self, which results in the client being able to define their own best way forward with greater self-insight.

Our Counsellors and Personal Counselling

Our clients receive 1:1 weekly counselling sessions throughout their 12 month Day programme. Our counsellors are trained in the issues most likely to affect recovering addicts however; your personal counsellor will also non-directedly facilitate your ability to work with your individual vulnerabilities and/or distresses.

Our counsellors are focused on building empathic relationships which promote equality, respect and trust. Such relationships help our clients to discuss concerns and events with their counsellor that may be impossible to disclose to family members or friends. Our counsellors must have integrity, be honest and open and be able to keep the contractual boundaries and confidentiality client and counsellor agree together.

Our counsellors regularly attend ongoing supervision with a trained and registered Supervisory Counsellor in order to enhance their practice, protect their clients and assure their personal wellbeing as practitioners.

Many of our counsellors trained at LC&CTA (an Organisational Member of the BACP) and visit clients at Renaissance Horizon under the management of LC&CTA’s Community Counselling Service.
