What is one-to-one support?

One-to-one support, such as counselling, CBT and other therapies give you the opportunity to discuss what’s on your mind with a professional in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental way.

How can it help me?

However you’re feeling, you don’t have to deal with your emotions on your own. Having someone to talk to can make a big difference. Tens of thousands of people have had talking therapies such as counselling, and the research shows that it works well for most people. The counsellor or therapist is there to work with you. By talking to them about your problems, they’ll be able to listen, support, advise, and help you explore options so you can find resolutions and move forward in a positive way.

What can I expect?

Everyone's situation is different, which is why there are many types of support and treatment available. One of our professional advisors will be able to help you find the right support option for you. If they think you’ll benefit from one-to-one support, they’ll put you in touch with a counsellor or therapist to discuss the best way of working together. Once you’ve discussed your situation with them, you may decide to meet on a weekly or monthly basis, in person or online for a number of weeks or months, or until your situation improves.
