Please be aware that counselling is not a substitute for professional medical care by a qualified doctor or other health care professional. Always check with your doctor if you have any concerns about your physical health, condition or treatment.
Talking therapies are not intended to replace conventional medical treatment and care. Nor are they intended to replace formal diagnosis and treatment by a qualified medical practitioner.
Talking therapies may give information or guidance that could bring about positive change and such information or guidance is given to the client to consider. Although the therapist will be supportive and as helpful as possible in all decision making and change processes, any resulting choices and changes made by the client do remain the personal and legal responsibility of the client.
