Which Of These Four Lies Is Stopping You From Dealing With Your Trauma And Managing Your Emotions During This Pandemic?
I Do Not Have Time
"If you don't take time for your wellness, you will be forced to take time for your illness."
You only have one body and one mind, being too busy for counselling and support to deal with your trauma will eventually lead you to destruction, bleeding on others and continuous negative relationship even with your child.
Having a professional to talk to in Counselling saved my life -
I will remember bad things from my past and I will feel worse in therapy
60% of People who completed suicide refused Counselling when offered, 25% didn't engage in therapy before suicide.
Royal College Of Psychiatrists
Counselling does not make you feel worse, not going makes you feel worse and even kills and that is the fact. Mould grows in darkness, once you shine light and speak about your trauma with a professional like your counsellor here with us, your Therapist can help you unpack it and clean the mould permanently so sunshine can come in, ignoring mould will make it grow and infect the rest of the property, opening doors, cleaning it properly and shining light will be the best thing you ever do.
It Cost Too Much
"Going therapy increases your income, helps you build a happier relationship and find/keep better-paying jobs."
Research by British Household Panel
Here at Floating Counselling, we know that you matter to the survival of our country, and we want to help you and your family, so we have created a manageable cost that you can afford, offering you 13 sessions for the price of only 5.

I Will Be Seen As Weak Or Disabled
"I am a proud Patron of counselling for young people, adults and families and every member of my family have and appreciate the power of therapy"
The Duchess of Cambridge - Kate Middleton
The British Royal Family all have counselling, Future King of England does not see Counselling as weakness, so why should you, he and his brother Prince Harry have been to Counselling and there is nothing weak or disabled about them. They have both confessed to the power, the importance and how helpful it was for their sanity and success.

What This is NOT
This is Not an advice service
A place we will judge you
A place your Counsellor attempts to sort out your problems
Expecting or encouraging you to behave as Your counsellor would behave if confronted with a similar problem in their own life.
We know it takes huge faith to come to get therapeutic counselling in dealing with your trauma, to ensure you have a better relationship with self, others and your child. We will help you to learn to be aware of your healing journey and help you start to work through past hurts, traumas and let downs in order to not pass them onto your child and current or future spouses subconsciously or consciously.
Learn to love self and your child their own unique way
You will have templates, homework, support and if needed proven scripts on how to heal, and be effective, as well as loving to yourself and your child, without killing their unique spirit or suppressing it, whilst still maintaining a positive loving connection and healthy, secure attachment with your child. In order for that to happen, you need to love yourself unconditionally
Learn to love your child their own unique way
You will learn about your emotions, how to build and maintain resilience by learning skills on how to regulate emotions. Decreasing maladaptive behaviour patterns that result from poor self-awareness. Improving the ability to balance your personal and professional life.
You will learn how to communicate more effectively in relationships and with your child to create a positive attachment. With long term commitment from you and your Psychotherapist, you will have useful tools and strategies to overcome life challenges,

Therapy With Realistic Tools And Strategy For A Better Life
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to attend weekly sessions?
The standard therapeutic weekly sessions help you make gradual and steady progress that means you see real results. In some cases, your therapist will agree to two or more sessions per week, if you both deem it beneficial and they have the availability.
If you require more than one session a week, your therapist may be able to accommodate this, with a review as things start to improve for you.
Sometimes, however, the therapist you are working with will not have any other availability, so will not be able to offer multiple weekly sessions.
For couples therapy, do we have to attend all sessions together?
Ideally you will attend all sessions together as a couple. In instances where one of you is unable to attend, our therapists will see the person who can attend. The issues that arise in this individual session will then be shared at the next session when both partners are present.
I only want one session, will the therapist be able to help?
Generally, your first session will be used as an assessment and consultation, rather than for treatment. This allows you to identify your issues as you see them, fill in paperwork, understand therapy, and for your therapist to start to gain an idea of what your needs are. So, unfortunately, having just one session is unlikely to have any lasting benefit for you.
What is the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?
In basic terms, a psychiatrist is a registered doctor who can diagnose mental illness and prescribe medication. Psychologists and Psychotherapists will offer talking therapy and would not typically provide diagnoses or medication (though they will have a good understanding of the diagnosis or even medication that might be applicable). Where necessary they will liaise with psychiatrists to support you further.
How experienced is my therapist?
All our Psychotherapist here at Floating Counselling are fully qualified, insured and have more than 10 years - 25 years of experience each, so we are very experienced in supporting you therapeutically.
The therapists are also all registered and accredited (or eligible for accreditation) with at least one of the following:
BACP - British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
BABCP - British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy
BPS - British Psychological Society

What if I want to try more than one kind of therapy?
Our therapists are what is known as 'integrative', meaning we have trained to combine a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches to best help their clients. This means you and your Therapist with us will work using whichever kind of therapy best suits you and the issue you have come in with.
