Counselling is a working relationship between client and counsellor. It provides a safe and confidential environment where people can bring a wide variety of problems and difficulties: bereavement, relationship issues or persistent patterns of behaviour which inhibit achievement and bring great dissatisfaction.

Through this therapeutic process people learn to use their own resources to identify problems, recognise choices of action and make appropriate changes. New ways of thinking and behaving can be tried out, which can lead to the discovery of unrecognised potential, increased self confidence and a greater zest for life.

The Clapham Common Clinic is recognised by The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy. All counsellors follow the BACP and/or UKCP code of practice.
