Counselling provides a neutral, trusting and non-judgemental relationship in which you can try to resolve your problems. Having someone to listen to you and encourage you helps you to understand and explore your problems and find solutions. Counselling concentrates more on understanding the problem and its causes than coaching or mentoring. The solution you achieve can be external, such as working on having a better relationship with your parents, or internal, such as stopping blaming yourself for something that is not your fault.

I am so appreciative of my coach’s help, and couldn’t have made the improvements I have without him.
The therapy transformed my daughter’s life and our family’s. We were all so worried and affected by D’s unhappiness. D went on to pass her A-levels and got a place on the uni course she had dreamed of. As a family we are so grateful to Signpost- please keep on doing what you’re doing.
Thank you for helping so much for the past few months, I really appreciate it, and all the techniques you’ve taught me will come in handy.
Just wanted to thank you for being there, it means a lot when no one else seems to be bothered. I can hear in your voice that you do actually care. I’m depressed a lot of the time so it means a lot even if it’s once a week. Thank you.
I have learned some new ways of using art. It helps me feel calm and I have made new friends’ (11 year old member of the Art group).
Signpost quickly responded to lockdown, putting in place online documents for counsellors and training in Zoom (ensuring compliance with GDPR). Clients did not miss any sessions as telephone or video was immediately offered. Clients were supported to ensure their privacy during sessions by offering more time flexibility when they could speak privately. Counsellors adapted their work in sessions by using the Zoom whiteboard for creative or timeline work to replace paper and pens in the room. The ‘Linked up in Lockdown’ group was set up and parent support was offered to any parents who were struggling.
