Based on the aforementioned evidences, we are happy to announce the commencement of its rehabilitation programs aimed at empowering the people of Manchester so that they can overcome the many challenges of life. Our Instructors are all certified counsellors with many years of experience. This service is free, however we suggest that you pre book your session mentioning as much detail as you can about the particulars of your situation. Every piece of information you provide will be dealt with the utmost confidentiality. 


What is rehabilitation and what can it help me with?

Rehabilitation is a type of therapy that can help you deal with issues that are causing you emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable. It is an opportunity to talk to someone in confidence, about anything that is worrying you. This could be about home life, school, college, relationships or just about how you are feeling about yourself. It is for when you have things going on in your life that you find hard to talk about with people who are close to you. You will have an appointment with the same counsellor every week, who will listen to you and help you explore how you are feeling. Our trained counsellors are friendly and welcoming and won‟t make judgements about you or your problems. Your counsellor will never tell you what to do. We will listen to you and ask you for feedback on how we are helping you, giving you the opportunity to tell us if we aren’t getting it right. We want to make sure our counselling service offers you help in the best way possible.

Some of the things rehabilitation can help you with include:
* dealing with issues that are stopping you achieving your ambitions
* dealing with feelings of depression or sadness
* dealing with feelings of anxiety or worry
* understanding yourself and your problems better
* feeling more confident and getting a more positive outlook on life
* developing a better understanding of other people’s points of view

What if I want to stop sessions sooner?

At any point you can decide with your counsellor to end sessions. Perhaps your problem has been solved and you’re feeling better about things, perhaps you’re now starting some rehabilitation elsewhere. Your counsellor will be happy to do the end assessment earlier to capture your progress. Your counsellor may discuss ending sessions with you if you need further support from a professional, doctor or emergency services.

I’m worried about having counselling. What should I expect?

During your rehabilitation sessions, you’ll be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions. By talking through your concerns with you, the counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of the way you think and feel, so you can work toward solutions to you problems. For some people, speaking to a counsellor for the first time can feel a bit scary. However, our counsellors are all experienced and will be able to reassure you. The counsellor will guide you with specific questions to find out what is going on for you.

Will my counsellor tell anyone about what we talk about?

The rehabilitation we offer is confidential. Our service is confidential. This means that what you say to us will remain within our team and will not be passed on to anyone else without your consent. The only exception would be if we had very serious concerns about your safety or that of others. In such exceptional circumstances we would discuss this with you and encourage you to seek emergency support.

Will records be kept about my counselling?

Yes. our rehabilitation service keeps basic notes of what happens during sessions, but these are confidential and not shared with anyone outside of the service. We also keep a separate record of overall demographic (statistical) information about the people who use our service.

What are positive coping strategies?

Positive coping strategies are any actions you take to manage and reduce stress, anxiety and worry in your life, in a way that isn’t going to be harmful later in life. Strategies may include writing things down, talking to someone you trust, walking away from difficult situations or expressing how you feel.

Can I refer someone else for counselling?

If there’s someone you know who is over 10 who would like some rehabilitation, please do recommend. Your friend will need to either call us or they can complete the online form

What if I start seeing a counsellor at my school or through my doctor after we’ve already started sessions?

If you start receiving face to face support that’s wonderful! It means you may be getting more intensive support that’s right for you. During our sessions, we will agree when it would be appropriate to end rehabilitation sessions with us and do a final review and assessment with you.
