Our Approach to Helping

Counselling is the skilled and principled use of relationship to facilitate self- knowledge, emotional acceptance and growth and the optimal development of personal resources. The overall aim is to provide an opportunity to work towards living more satisfyingly and resourcefully. Counselling relationships will vary according to need but may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insights and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others.

The counsellor’s role is to facilitate in ways that respect your values, personal resources and capacity for self-determination within a framework of empathy, honesty and authenticity.

At Oakhill, we are committed to your well-being and personal development by leveraging our unique selves as individuals and professionals to help you refine and develop actions that work. That’s what we do and that’s why we’re the best choice.
