At the Acorn Centre we take a holistic view of people’s health and wellbeing. We work from a Person centred perspective, and use an integrated range of counselling models personally tailored to best match each individual client’s needs.
Counselling models used include Cognitive behavioural, Psychodynamic. Solution Focussed, Gestalt, and Imago. Thus facilitating individuals and couples to explore, reflect upon, and empower themselves to resolve difficulties in their lives and relationships.
The current economic climate is adding hugely to the stress and anxiety faced by many people who are finding themselves at the end of their resources, both physical and mental. Although we recieve no public funding, we offer a sliding scale of fees to people depending on their financial means.
We undertake to treat all our clients with the utmost respect and dignity, while committing all our skills and resources to improving their quality of life. We believe that anybody who is committed to counselling/Psychotherapy can and will change, opening up new, more positive possibilities for the future.
Changes may include feeling more in control, managing emotions better, feeling more self confident and assertive, and having a greater sense of freedom to act and to make positive choices.
“It is wisdom to know others; It is enlightenment to know one’s self.” (Lao-Tzu)
