As part of TalkingSpace Plus, the PML Counsellors offer short term therapy within a therapeutic relationship in order to enable and facilitate change. They use a range of interventions in order to deliver an individual care package for each person.
Counsellors work with people who are depressed and who may be affected by life issues, the majority being loss related which may include, relationship issues, abuse, bereavement, redundancy to name but a few. Some patients may be very vulnerable; many struggling with depression and anxiety alongside a combination of life events.
The Counsellor works to help reduce risk by helping the person to develop ways of coping and ways of understanding their situation at a difficult time in their lives. The aim is for example, they may be able to return to work, to improve personal relationships, or to start to enjoy life more.
