MODERN, INCLUSIVE, INTEGRATIVE, COUNSELLING
Here at Carrs Lane Counselling Centre, we endorse an attitude of diversity and openness that influences both our theoretical outlook and our clinical practice. We use an inclusive model of counselling which is generally known as Integrative Counselling. This brings together different elements of specific counselling theories. From its beginning in 1967, the counselling practice at Carrs Lane Counselling Centre has been, and continues to be, based on a person centred ethic. This means that counselling works through a relationship between a client and a counsellor, with the aim of the client becoming able to see his/her own potential for freedom, choices and change.
ACCEPTANCE, EQUALITY, HONESTY AND TRUST
This consequently includes ensuring that we consistently provide our clients with an ambience of acceptance, equality, honesty and trust. Additionally as respective members of the main UK governing bodies, all our counsellors are bound by a comprehensive code of ethics produced by each body, such as the Ethical Framework For The Counselling Professions produced by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy.
ENSURING QUALITY OF PRACTICE
At Carrs Lane Counselling Centre we ensure that all our counsellors routinely work in close association with a supervisor. We actively encourage our counsellors to attend our frequently held continuing professional development workshops.
IN ADDITION TO OUR TRADITIONAL ONE TO ONE COUNSELLING, OUR OTHER COUNSELLING SERVICE OPTION IS:
Here at Carrs Lane Counselling Centre we recognise the importance of having satisfying relationships and how they contribute to our personal well being and the overall quality of our lives. When difficulties are experienced within any of our various relationships it can be tremendously distressing and it can have a negative impact on many areas within our lives. Sometimes we are able to work through these difficulties ourselves, yet there are other times when the situation fails to change at all or ends up repeating itself.
At such times you may decide to seek help from others but not quite know where to turn. Well, here at Carrs Lane Counselling Centre our relationships counselling is designed to assist with those difficulties that you may be encountering in any of your relationships, whether this be a relationship with a Spouse, Sibling, Son, Daughter, Mother, Father, Friend, Work Colleague, Neighbour or any other personal relationship. Our relationship focused counselling is where you and the other person in the relationship attend together to mutually explore your relationship and the issues that surround it with the help and guidance of one of our trained relationship counsellors.
