Equality and Diversity
Oulton-Lee Counselling welcomes diversity. We are
here to support a wide diversity of clients in terms of ethnicity
but also in numerous other ways.
We also recognise that for some people faith may
be a very important part of their counselling process, whereas for
others it will not. We respect the client’s process whether
or not this includes spirituality.
There are several different theoretical approaches
to counselling. Gestalt is one such approach.
Gestalt is a German word for which there is no easy
English equivalent. It is to do with bringing to awareness and making
connections that are not obviously apparent. Overall, it is a way
of enriching people’s understanding of themselves, their environment
and their experiences in order that they can have more choices about
the way ahead. In this way, people are empowered to lead more positive
lives in the future.
Many people can find themselves in situations where their circumstances or feelings become overwhelming, which can lead to a sense of despair or hopelessness.
Through counselling it is possible to regain a fresh sense of hope despite the circumstances in which you find yourself or the experiences you have been through.
