Family Relationship Counselling Service

Rosemount Family Relationship Counselling Service

When someone in the family has a problem, families and relationships are put under strain, it can sometimes leave families feeling isolated and alone, especially if they are unable to share those feelings with each other or friends. It can be natural to want to protect the family by keeping problems hidden, however it is important that families and individuals find an outlet for their feelings and emotions.

Talking to a non-judgmental and unbiased professional counsellor, collectively as a family or individually gives you the opportunity to consider your emotions and ways of coping or adjusting. It may help lead you to a greater sense of control and purpose, especially at a time when everything may seem quite overwhelming.

What is Counselling?

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

The aim of counselling is to help you to identify and deal with problems you feel you have. Counselling is a series of confidential meetings between you and your counsellor to explore your problems.

Counselling usually occurs weekly and each session lasts around an hour.

What can counselling help with?

Counselling can help you cope with:

What to expect from counselling

At your appointment, you’ll be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained therapist, who’ll listen and support you without judging or criticising.

The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, and find your own solutions to problems. But they won’t usually give advice or tell you what to do.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months, or a longer course that lasts for several months

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress, but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your therapist.

The length of each session is normally 50 minutes. Appointments are available:

Monday 9.30am – 4.30pm

Tuesday & Wednesday 9.30am -8pm

Friday 2pm to 4.00pm.

*Please let your counsellor know if you cannot make your session and it will be rearranged.

Confidentiality & Child Protection

Things need to be in place before counselling can begin for Children and Young people so if you are interested contact Carolanne to have all in place before starting.

Everything that is talked about within the counselling session is private and strictly confidential within the counselling service.

Your counsellor will help you identify what your problems are and how to manage them. Therapy is hard work and stirs uncomfortable emotions and memories.

Parents and carers should be mindful when Children and Young People are attending counselling that they should refrain from entering into conversations about what occurred within their session. This allows a place where individuals are unrestricted and all aspects of their self can be accepted.

If you would like to make an appointment or simply ask some questions please contact the service by phone on 0141-212-6515  and 07494897929 OR EMAIL: carolanne.reat@rosemount.ac.uk
