Other Therapies

Couples Therapy

All couples are unique and we want to encourage and support all couples to getting back to how they work best together.

Couples counselling should be non judgemental, supportive and offer an opportunity for both sides of the couple to be heard and valued as individuals.

We provide a safe space for you to explore whatever it is that’s concerning you for as long as you need to.

Sessions cost £50 per session

Family Therapy

Most families at some stage are presented with difficulties to overcome. Everyone wants their family to function in a positive way where each member is supported and loved. It is at times like these that it can be helpful to engage in family therapy.

Our therapists at SM will give you time and space to explore the issues and relationships in a confidential and respectful environment.

We recognise that each family is unique and so the methods introduced will be specific to your family and its members.

One of the keys to successful family living is communication. Family therapy gives each member the opportunity to be heard and understood without being judged.

Sessions cost £60 per session

Art Therapy

Art Therapy can benefit everybody.

Anyone can benefit from art therapy but it is especially beneficial to those who may be experiencing depression and anxiety; inability to express feelings, or out of touch with feelings. Difficulty in coping with issues of separation, loss, or bereavement; social and communication difficulties; experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties; lack of clear identity such as low self-esteem/self-image. Lack of purpose; difficult controlling emotions; relationship difficulties; trauma and addiction.

Those who have experienced trauma can access memories and experiences more readily through image making than traditional talking therapies. If someone cannot verbalise a past event, it can offer the expression of emotion through the use of an art process.

Artistic ability is not required and the therapy sessions focus on expression and your personal interpretation, rather than the artistic skill of the individual.

Sessions cost £50 per session

Next Steps…

Once you decide to get in touch, Joanne or Patrycja will ask you a few questions over the telephone about why you have decided to book in for counselling. This ensures that we place you with the best therapist to meet your needs, on a day and time to suit you. This will take about 10-15 minutes, so make a cup of tea and find somewhere quiet and comfortable to sit.

Following your mini telephone assessment, you will then be placed on the waiting list and as soon as an appointment becomes available it will be offered to you. Sometimes it can be hard to predict when an appointment is likely to become available because we don’t limit the number of sessions you can attend however, we won’t have forgotten you.
