About THE SERVICE
If you have been thinking about counselling, taking that first step towards contacting someone can be quite daunting. There maybe several questions going through your mind:
- Will I feel safe with a counsellor?
- Will the counsellor understand me?
- Will things be kept confidential?
At Paisley Counselling, we will provide a caring, supportive, confidential, and non-judgmental environment where you will be listened to, heard, respected, and valued. We know that the relationship which you develop with your counsellor is foundational to how much benefit you will get from counselling.
At the initial session, your counsellor will discuss with you the situations you are facing, and they will talk about how things could be addressed in future counselling sessions.
Counsellors at the service
Paisley Counselling is staffed by fully qualified counsellors, as well as trainee counsellors who are working towards accreditation with postgraduate studies in counselling and psychotherapy.
Concessions with trainee counsellors
If you see a trainee you will be eligible for a concessionary fee. There is quite a demand for concessionary places and we try to reserve them for students and people with a low income. This can be discussed at your initial session.
We choose our postgraduate trainee counsellors very carefully, selecting mature people from high profile professional backgrounds who are studying on reputable courses. You can be confident that if you are seen by a trainee counsellor, you will be seeing someone who is sufficiently trained and experienced to help you.
