Our Process & Approach

How can we help

In Aspen we can provide you with the opportunity to talk with one of our professional therapists within 48 hours of first contact.

You will be able to explore your issues in a safe and confidential environment.

Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing you pain and distress.

Our counsellors are there to support you. We can provide a safe and supportive environment to explore your feelings where your views will be fully listened too and respected.

What to expect from Counselling:

During your counselling sessions, you’ll be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions.

By discussing your concerns with one of our fully qualified therapists, they will help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to your problems. A regular commitment is required to make best use of the counselling as it takes a number
of sessions before the therapy can start to make a difference in your life. The counselling session will last for 50 minutes.
