WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM COUNSELLING?

shutterstock_127148489
Some people may be put off from asking for help because they’re not sure what ‘counselling’ is. Here at Motiv8 we tend to use a client or ‘person-centred’ approach to counselling (whereby the client is the centre of the process, but also with a heavy emphasis on motivational interviewing skills, which are essential to promoting change.
The service premises have a discreet entrance and there are no outward signs as to who we are. Inside, there is no waiting room and an intercom system will help you gain access to the premises, where you will be taken immediately to your counselling room. We will offer you a hot drink and a warm welcome.

Counselling may help you:

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT SOMEONE ELSES DRINKING, DRUG USE OR GAMBLING COUNSELLING CAN HELP. – Although you may not be able to stop someone’s behaviour you can improve on the way you cope with it by speaking with one of our experienced counsellors.

How often can I be seen?

Usually clients are offered a weekly appointment for an agreed time period. Once you have reached your goals follow up sessions can be arranged.
