What is Counselling?
Corby Mind provides one to one counselling with our professionally trained counsellors in a safe and confidential setting, giving you space to talk with someone who is trained to listen and can help you understand your feelings and see difficulty in a more manageable way. Counselling is not giving you advice or telling you what to do but is a safe place to understand your thoughts and feelings from where you can move forward and consider options.
You are welcome to refer yourself for counselling or if you are a professional, refer someone else. You will be offered an initial assessment in which you can talk about your needs and choose the most appropriate services. There is normally a waiting list for counselling but how long you wait depends on your needs and the availability of an appropriate counsellor.
Counsellors can provide help with any problems that are causing emotional distress, for example:
Most Counsellors at Corby Mind are volunteers; however, a contribution is requested towards the running of Mind.
Counselling session contribution costs:
- Unwaged contribution £20
- Waged contribution £35
There are concessions available, should you feel you cannot pay. Please do discuss this during your initial assessment.
