Here at the Ash Surgery we offer counselling on a one to one basis, this takes place in private room upstairs within the surgery. The service is strictly private and confidential. The theoretical methods we use involve person centered counselling, psychodynamic counselling, CBT, Brief Therapy and Couple counselling. These types of counselling can be applied to the following issues: - bereavement, depression, childhood issues, sexual abuse, relationships, bullying, work related stress, low self-esteem, anxiety and tension. We have a counselling coordinator, Bev, who manages a team of 11 counsellors. It is Bev’s job to assess the patients’ needs within an initial phone call, the patient is then placed with the most suitable counsellor for their needs, this way we can achieve the best possible outcome. If you feel that you may benefit from this service please discuss with one of our doctors.
