Here at U Matter counselling, we understand the importance of being seen and heard in order to heal. Sometimes things can become difficult to bear with, and you just need that extra helping hand which empowers you to support yourself. You’ve taken the toughest step in reaching out and, our team of psychotherapists and psychologists are here to support and hold you through providing tailored therapeutic interventions to meet your needs.
This involves working with you on an individualistic approach with the style of counselling which is more suitable to the support that may benefit your needs. One-to-one therapy is designed to provide you with a safe and supportive space that allows you to explore personal issues and connect with your feelings.
Our counsellors provide a caring, supportive and non-judgmental environment to help you find a way through any difficulties you may be facing in your relationship. Together we will first help you to identify the issues or problems you are facing in your relationship. If you decide couple counselling is the way forward for both of you, you will embark on a series of short-term counselling sessions - anything between six and twelve sessions is normal, but it will depend on the issues you are experiencing. For some couples, counselling is the start of a longer process of discovery while for others, a few sessions of counselling may be all they need to move through a rough patch. You will be able to discuss your expectations with your counsellor.
Group therapy is the psychological therapy that happens within a group of people. This group of people tend to share the same common issue and find it easier to discuss and work around the problem. Whilst in a group therapy environment, it allows for support to be given from the therapist as well as the group members as they are sharing and experiencing similar concerns.
The main aim of family therapy is to explore and help members of the family to share a better understanding of each other, change any negative behaviours and work on resolving any issues or conflicts within the family. There is no age limit to this and can work with anyone within the family members
This type of therapy is aimed at children who may need a little support or may have experienced unpleasant events in their life. Play therapy helps children to express themselves, explore their thoughts and feelings and come to a better understanding of their life experiences. Children are consistently expressing themselves through play and therefore is a natural activity for them. This will allow them to learn, explore and communicate and therefore is considered highly effective for helping children to play out what they may be finding difficult to express through words.
