PPE for Wallsend Counselling Centre £2,000
Counselling and Psychotherapy are talking therapies. The basis of counselling and psychotherapy is the relationship that is established between the person being supported and their counsellor or psychotherapist. It is essential that the person being treated feels safe and that his counsellor is trusting and non-judgemental and that the person feels they will be met with respect, sensitivity and understanding so that they are free to speak about whatever is on their mind and make a recovery.
