The Horsforth Centre

What We Do - A Quick Overview

 

Counselling

Counselling is what's called a "talking therapy". It allows you to talk openly and honestly, without fear of being judged, about what's concerning you. It offers you an opportunity to explore how you're feeling in a safe and confidential environment. Your counsellor will provide friendly, experienced support, enabling you to work through your issues at a pace that suits you.

Supervision...

What is supervision?
Supervision is a vital component for any practitioner who offers therapy, counselling or works in a relational environment and is a requirement of professional bodies within the counselling, psychotherapy and therapy fields. The supervisory relationship offers a meta-perspective: a way of rising above the clinical work and reflecting on how to make the clinical practice even safer and more effective.

Trauma Therapy...

Traumatic events, whether singular or ongoing can overwhelm our ability to cope with everyday life and lead us to question our beliefs around safety and trust. When a person suffers psychological trauma, they often struggle to understand the events and the strong feelings evoked. Often, these feelings pass in time and the trauma is processed by the brain just as it does other events.

Hypnotherapy...

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and/or level of concentration that the average individual reaches daily. Hypnotherapy is a guided relaxation and/or concentration where the ideas expressed (suggestions) by the therapist are generally remembered more readily which, in turn, creates a new awareness.

Art Psychotherapy...

Art Psychotherapy, also known as Art Therapy, is a form of Psychotherapy that uses art to help people express themselves and explore difficult thoughts and feelings. Talking about your problems can be difficult, and sometimes words might not seem enough or somehow get in the way, so being able to communicate through another medium (art) may be easier. The art making process allows you to work at a pace that suits you, and it is up to you how much, if at all, you want to say about your artwork.
