Counselling in The Drug Treatment Centre

The code of Ethics and Practice for Counsellors states that “Counselling may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insight and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others”.

Here in the Drug Treatment Board a team of fully trained and accredited counsellors are available to engage in one to one session with any client attending the clinic.

Here are some thoughts from the founders of psychotherapy.

Carl Roger: ‘It seems to me that at bottom of each person is asking, “who am I really? How can I get in touch with this real self, underlying all my surface behaviour? How can I become myself?’’’

William Glasser: “choice theory is about making better choices, but we have to understand the reason for bad choices before we can make good one.”.
