Life has a little habit of ‘happening’
We don’t know what we don’t yet know and because of this we can sometimes experience significant challenges in different degrees at various times in our lives. We may need a little support to work through them and it is important to reach out and engage with trained professionals who are approachable, professional and compassionate. Our team understand that clients can benefit from an integrative approach where counselling and psychotherapy can also include Hypnotherapy, Coaching, NLP or EMDR to help them work through the challenges in the shortest possible time with an approach tailored individually for them.
Within Changes 4 Life the quality of therapeutic relationship is nurtured, focusing on helping their clients to feel heard, comfortable, safe and able to express themselves, which means they can make sense of their challenges quickly whilst working towards taking control back of their life once again.
It can be very normal for new clients to feel a little nervous, apprehensive or even vulnerable when considering disclosing private and personal information to someone you don’t know very well yet. This is the reason that we offer every client a free 20 minute telephone or video call session with their chosen team member to explore and identify together the best approach for you and to help you feel at ease with the process.
