At Insight Counselling we offer you a safe, confidential, place, where you can talk about yourself and your life. Counselling services are available to residents of Dundee and Angus. You are also eligible to use our services if you are registered with a GP in Dundee or Angus but live outwith the area.
Counselling will offer you an opportunity to think and talk about yourself and your concerns in a way that you often can’t do with family and friends. You will be offered a place and time which is just for you to talk about those things that bother you. You may find it to be painful or confusing. You may feel uncomfortable, angry or unhappy.
We will listen to the way you feel and how this affects you and others in your life. At Insight Counselling we accept the way you are without judging you and support you to make the changes you would like to happen.
Our counsellors work hard to create a good therapeutic relationship with you so that you can work well together. We understand that it is not always easy to talk about problems and to express your feelings.
We will work with you towards improving your well-being. We may also have information and resources to share with you.
Our counsellors will not offer to ‘cure’ you. We will not judge you or make decisions for you. We will not take advantage of you in any way. Your counsellor will not spend time talking about their own problems. Your counselling will be confidential and your counsellor will not inappropriately discuss what the two of you talk about with other people.
All our counsellors work in accordance with the BACP code of ethics and practice. (Adapted from British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. (2010).
