At Plymouth Counselling Service we are always interested in new ways to access therapeutic tools for our clients. This week we have been checking out a mindfulness app called buddhify. It is a great way of  accessing guided meditations custom-made for wherever you are and whatever you’re doing – traveling, at work, at home, going to sleep.

Our Mission
Plymouth Counselling Services is a safe confidential space to explore issues with professional BACP Registered therapists. We offer one to one consultations and a range of personal development sessions in the Plymouth area. Our aim is to offer a therapeutic relationship which we hope will facilitate positive change in our clients’ lives. In addition we can also provide sessions at a location to suit you.

Our Aims
Many of us have times in our lives when we feel confused and unable to cope – talking to a Counsellor may help if you are going through such a time. People find counselling useful for many different reasons – you do not have to be desperate to benefit from counselling.
Our Sessions enable you to explore difficulties or problems with a person who will listen with acceptance. It can be difficult to talk with friends or family about concerns, counselling can enable you to communicate worries or painful experiences without fear of judgement. We hope that through the process of sharing you will benefit from a new understanding of your issues and yourself.

We can help if you are:
• Feeling lonely, anxious or depressed
• Having problems with relationships
• Feeling isolated and hopeless
• In need of understanding and support
• Going through a personal crisis or major changes
• Unhappy with your work
• Feeling angry and out of control
• Experiencing difficulty controlling your emotions
• Wanting to improve your quality of life and self awareness
• Suffering loss
• Anxiety
• Depression
• Grief
• Trauma
• Identify and over come barriers
• Making informed decisions in your personal and social life
• In need of help to access other local services that can support you

Some of the techniques and approaches we use:
• Person Centred Therapy
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
• Gestalt Therapy
• Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)
• Mindfulness
• Transactional Analysis (TA)
• Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
