Total Health Counselling
How can a counsellor help me?
We are all aware of the ostrich with their head in the sand. Just like the ostrich, emotional issues, bereavement and anxiety will not disappear just because you ignore them. If anything, they get stronger. Ignoring these issues can often lead to other symptoms of poor health such as insomnia, headaches and general fatigue. For some clients more destructive behaviour can develop such as substance abuse or failing relationships.
Your counsellor can help provide you with the tools needed to deal with these strong feelings.
How does counselling work?
Counselling is the process that allows a person to better recognise the issues affecting them and develop the tools necessary to resolving them.
Counselling takes time. Just like the issues that have built up around the person, they rarely occur over night, and counselling works the same in reverse. But it is a very worthwhile process.
If any of the following statements describe your situation then counselling could be for you:
Anxiety or panic attacks
Exam stress or lack of motivation
Relationship breakdown or divorce
Bereavement and grief
Counselling is often a difficult first step, but a much easier second step. Let us help you take that first step towards a happier and more fulfilling life by offering you a free initial consultation. If you are worried about whether counselling can help you, just book one of our no fee, no obligation consultations.
Cambridge Counselling can be booked at the Cambridge Complementary Health Centre. 8 Rose Crescent, Cambridge. CB2 3LL
Counselling is one of the clinics most popular ‘talking therapies.’ If you are feeling a little out of control or just wish to gain a clear idea of where you would like your life to go, then counselling could be for you. Realising you need or want help is the first step towards getting a fitter, stronger and more happy life.
The world we live in today has never moved so fast and the demands and expectations we place ourselves under can often be unreasonable. It’s no wonder that sometimes we over do it and need a little help, or a push in the right direction.
What Happens At A Consultation?
After meeting your therapist you will be taken through a detailed consultation about your presenting complaint, recent and past medical history and general lifestyle questions. A physical examination of the face, tongue, hair, eyes etc is often useful to indicate your overall wellbeing.
Your therapist will then develop a treatment program tailored to your specific condition and will go through this with you. The first consultation is often a little longer than any follow up appointments that you may require. Expect your initial treatment to be approx 90 minutes, with follow up appointments around 60 mins.
“I’m suffering from back pain for a number of years and more recently from tendonitis in both shoulders. A friend of mine recommended to see Soraya working as osteopath at Cambridge Complementary Health. Soraya helped me reducing the pain significantly by using manual treatment and gave helpful advice about how to stretch and loosen muscles. I would recommend her to other people with back and neck problems. She’s taken the time to listen to your problems carefully to get an idea about the whole picture of the problem. If I will need osteopathic help again I’d contact her.”
“I went to Cambridge Complementary Health for osteopathy for my neck and back. Service and treatment were both excellent. I saw Soriah the osteopath and she was very understanding and experienced. I had already tried chiropractic and physiotherapy, neither of which did the trick. She also gave great advice on continuing to build my fitness to avoid future problems. Thoroughly recommend!”
“First class treatment by all staff, admin and treatment alike. I recommended husband to Jack who has done a wonderful job. Definitely keep going for maintenance treatments as the original problem has completely cleared up thanks to not only the treatment but advice for how to keep it from not coming back in the form of exercises and posture. Many many thanks.”
