Counselling

At Bassetlaw Mind we aim to provide you with a counselling experience that will support you to understand your psychological and emotional well being and to find ways of coping.

We provide a highly professional and ethical counselling and psychotherapy service.

Our therapists have all received thorough recognised training and all abide by the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This ensures that the service we provide is safe, ethical and confidential.

At your first meeting, we will ask about your personal circumstances and what is causing you concern. This will help determine if our service is right for you.

Following this you will be invited to attend a face to face 1 hour assessment to discuss your needs. At assessment you will be asked about your current situation, past experiences, a brief medical history and how you hope to benefit from counselling. If we cannot provide the correct help for you at this time we will do our best to find
alternative support.

After the assessment you will be placed on our waiting list. We will keep you informed regarding a start date for your sessions.

Bassetlaw Mind initially offers up to 8 counselling sessions after which future support will be discussed and there is the possibility of further sessions being accessed,  however this will be agreed between you and your counsellor, with regular reviews to understand how your sessions are going.

Counselling sessions will be conducted in our counselling rooms which are comfortable and relaxed surroundings that you will feel supported and safe to share with your counsellor the issues in your life that are causing concern.

Counselling sessions last for 50 minutes and cost £12.50 if you are un-waged and £20 if you are waged.
