About West Lakes Counselling

There are times in life when you may feel that you don't have anyone to turn to. You perhaps feel that family or friends may judge you if you talk to them about your problems or express certain feelings. Talking to a counsellor here at West Lakes Counselling may help take this pressure away. You will be free to open up, in confidence, and express these feelings in a safe environment.

We offer our services in the Copeland and Allerdale areas in Cumbria, England.

We believe that by using Talking Therapy, you are taking your first step to moving your life forward. You will be given the tools to inaugurate changes in your life that will bring about much needed growth that you perhaps need at this stage in your life.

Here at West Lakes Counselling you can be confident of receiving excellent care and support. All of our counsellors are fully qualified to degree and diploma level with several years expertise in their chosen field, offering a range of Person Centred, CBT and Solution Focused therapies. We take pride in offering affordable counselling for clients of all ages.

Counselling offers an opportunity to talk to a trained professional about your concerns, or worries, in a safe environment free of criticism and the fear of being judged. It is a time for you to be able to express your emotions and explore those situations that may be causing you problems.

Counsellors will not offer you advice, nor tell you what to do, but we will support you in working out for yourself what you want or need to bring about positive changes.

Good practice

Our counsellors are qualified and receive regular supervision and are accountable for the quality of their work with clients. Our counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and work within the BACP guidelines for good practice.
