Counselling & Counselling Psychology

Counselling Psychology can be thought of as the perfect blend of art and science, enabling exploration of concepts such as love, meaning, and existential purpose, informed by the empirical techniques of the science of psychology.

Psychologists at The House are all registered with the Health Professions Council and have had extensive training to doctoral level. This makes them much more able to explore issues in depth, working in ways which have proven to be very effective.
