Community wellbeing therapies provided by Helping Hand

Counselling

Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.

Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.

Clinical Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to try and treat conditions or change habits.

There are different types of hypnotherapy, and different ways of hypnotizing someone.

First, you’ll usually have a talk with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree what methods your therapist will use.

After this, the hypnotherapist may:

  • lead you into a deeply relaxed state – most people feel refreshed and relaxed
  • use your agreed methods to help you towards your goals – for example, suggesting that you do not want to carry out a certain habit
  • gradually bring you out of the trance-like state. Most people feel refreshed and relaxed

You’re fully in control when under hypnosis and do not have to take on the therapist’s suggestions if you do not want to. Hypnosis requires motivation from the client to work.

Child Counselling

Just like adults, children have a world of thoughts, feelings and situations they may struggle to process. Child counselling gives children a safe and confidential space to talk, better understand their own feelings and begin to learn tools to manage their mental health in a positive way
