Welcome to Tailored Counselling Services

Covid-19 Update

Following Government/Leading Mental Health Organisations Advice We At Tailored Counselling Are Now Offering Remote Counselling Only.

We Offer Remote Counselling services via Skype, Zoom and Telephone enabling clients to access Counselling whilst they are unable to access face-to-face counselling sessions. For some clients online therapy may well just be an individual preference.  Understandably some clients choose an alternative medium to access Counselling for reasons such as distance, mobility issues, transport problems, a busy daily schedule, and child/other caring responsibilities.  Depending on a clients personal circumstances remote Counselling sessions may suit individual needs much better. Remote Counselling offers more flexibility; there is no travel involved and it saves time.  Remote Counselling has the potential to overcome some of the barriers to conventional psychological therapy services

Conducting online Counselling sessions using remote mediums can at times in peoples’ lives for different reasons maintain continuity of treatment sessions. Providing the option for remote therapy even if just occasionally, can help mitigate some logistical challenges. 

The initial twenty minute consultation is free of charge to establish if remote Counselling is suitable, if we decide to continue and arrange a Counselling session payments can be made in advance by direct bank transfer.  Fees for Counselling will be discussed as part of the initial consultation.

Feedback of the Month

I was apprehensive before starting therapy but I needn’t have been, I’ve found Paula to have an understanding and empathetic manner and to be very easy to talk to. Paula is always ready to listen, offer a kind word, useful advice, encouragement or to challenge and debate ideas with me when needed. I look forward to my sessions and always walk out feeling like a weight has been lifted. I have never thought myself to be the type of person to open up to a ‘therapist’ but Paula creates a comfortable and relaxed environment, in which I never feel judged. In short Paula has (literally) been a life saver for me and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Rating of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Depression:

One hundred percent of feedback recieved from Clients rated our services as excellent and would definitely recommend Tailored Counselling Services


“Counselling helped me understand what the underlying issues were and why they were happening.  The ways to deal with the issues were particularly helpful for when similar issues arise in the future”

Always Listen First

Your therapist will offer you an approach tailored to your individual needs. We will provide you with a safe, confidential space in one of our comfortable locations near to you.

Together we will explore how you think and feel about the issues you want to discuss.  This may not change external circumstances or other people, however it can assist you to develop improved coping strategies and manage your problems more effectively. 

You can benefit from our experience - whoever you are and whatever your reason for wanting to improve your outlook.
