How long...

At Way Forward Counselling we do not limit the overall number of counselling sessions you can have. Through regular reviews of your progress, your counsellor will help you to decide how long you might like to attend in order to achieve your individual goals, ultimately the decision of how long to attend will be up to you. 

Short term counselling will typically last for 6 - 8 sessions (sometimes less) and be characterised by solution focused or CBT approaches to specific and manageable short term goals.

Long term counselling involves working at emotional depth over a longer period of time, with the intentionality of working through significant life events.

Some clients stay for a long time, others may only come for a few sessions ~ whatever your individual goals, we aim at being alongside you and supporting you in striving to achieve them.

Through Mindful, Ethical Best Practice...

Way Forward aims to invite a sense of peace, safety and trust. We endeavour to make sure that all our client’s understand the counselling process, are valued and their requirements are mindfully understood. We aim to make your experience of counselling a careful, gentle and healing process.

Some of the therapy undertaken at Way Forward Counselling Services is particularly creative including Art Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and the use of creative materials such as clay, Clients don't have to engage in these approaches but adult clients as well as children and young people enjoy different approaches to self expression.

The Experience of Others...

At Way Forward we do understand how difficult it is to make that initial contact with a counsellor or even to walk through the door for the first time. Sometimes it helps to read about other people’s experiences. If you would like to read some feedback and client experiences of counselling then please visit our feedback page here.
