WHAT WE DO
We provide Counselling, Psychotherapy and Consultancy services designed to support adults, adolescents and young people.
Your first consultation is free of charge and obligation, however, if we agree to work together the cost per session will be arranged.
We are different and proud to be.
Young People and Adolescents
We may describe ourselves as ‘feeling depressed’ when we’re feeling sad or miserable about life. These feelings are usually temporary and pass quickly. However, if the feeling doesn’t go away and persists for a period of weeks it could be a sign that you’re depressed in the medical sense of the term.
In its mildest form, depression can mean just feeling ‘low’. It doesn’t stop you leading your normal life, but makes everything harder to do and seem less worthwhile. At its most severe, major depression can be life-threatening, because it can make you feel suicidal or simply give up the will to live.
Young People and Adolescents
The team at Hopesprings have developed a specialism in working with and supporting young people. We offer a tailored stress and anxiety ‘toolbox’ for primary school aged young people and programmes of counselling for teenagers and young adults. Each member of our team has the necessary training, experience and qualifications necessary for working with young people.sheets containing.
The team at Hopesprings has extensive experience in supporting companies and organisations of all sizes. We offer training to staff teams in managing workplace stress and anxiety, effective communication and supporting employees affected by burnout.
We can help in mediating between colleagues and teams at work and offer support and training in promoting and sustaining more positive relationships.
We work with most of the biggest Employee Assistance Providers (EAPs) and insurance companies in the UK.
Couples counselling helps you to understand and make sense of your current and past relationships. Our pattern of relating to others is often set in our early years and can, without us knowing, affect the way we relate as adults. Counselling allows us to explore the origins of our ‘style’ of relating alongside our partners and in a secure and non-judgemental environment. In this setting couples can find the clarity to understand their difficulties and subsequently find a way to move forward. Even if things are going perfectly for you, we can help keep things that way.
