Counselling offers a safe and confidential space for you to talk about your life and any problems or concerns you may be experiencing.
Talking through your problems with a trained professional can help you identify where your difficulties lie, enabling you to re-evaluate your life and open up the possibility of change.
We offer short term (6-12 weeks) and long-term counselling. It is our view, however, that therapy is a very personal process. Each person is unique and therefore how long the therapy will last will depend on the individual and what they bring to the sessions.
Talking therapies (Counselling and Psychotherapy) have been shown to be effective in assisting with many common psychological problems including depression, anxiety, relationship problems, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss, stress, work-related issues, trauma and abuse.

At Green Lane Counselling and Psychotherapy, our aim is to offer affordable, effective counselling without making you wait too long.
We believe that every person is unique and when it comes to counselling and psychotherapy, one size does not fit all.
We see the individual as being made up of thoughts, emotions, behaviours and physical sensations. As integrative practitioners, we will work with all these different aspects using evidence-based psychotherapeutic approaches in response to the individual needs of our clients.
Many studies have concluded that the most decisive factor affecting the outcome of therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. It is therefore important to us that our clients feel that they are being heard in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. We will strive to treat our clients with respect, dignity and compassion at all times.
