What is Counselling?

The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy definition of counselling, 'Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be sent for counselling'.


At times life presents us with difficulties and stresses. Where relationships break down, redundancies, bereavements or where Drugs/Alcohol become a problem counselling can help. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to loved ones and can be easier to someone who is not involved. Counselling can be a valuable way to help us through these times, to address issues, identify new perspectives, coping strategies & ways forward.


The Well Being Centre provides counselling privately to members of the public and also with BUPA. (As part of certain BUPA packages BUPA members are entitled to up to 5 counselling sessions.)


If you are experiencing symptoms of depression you may be entitled to free services including counselling/support/confidence building groups,stress management.

Bridging the Gap

Here at the  WellBeing Centre we regularly find people accessing help because they just don't know where to go or what to do. We approached the Lottery to request their support to fund this service as the need was evident but we were not funded for this work previously. This short term project will help us provide evidence of need.

Despite funding having ended for this project we continue to help people who are slipping through the gap.

If you or someone you know finds themselves slipping through the net of health and well being services then get in touch for an appointment and we will liaise and do all we can to help you access the services that are right for you. Get in touch for more information or to make an appointment on 01287 204400

Confidence, Life Coaching & NLP

Everyone needs a little help sometimes. Whether for problems in life, family or work; helping with confidence, stress, anxiety, or simply getting you out of a rut and motivating you - Linda Innes can support you in making changes for the better. 


A life coach is your supporter and guide to making your life the best it can be; like a sports coach, directing you to better performance and outcomes in life.  We explore how we can transform the way we think, feel, and behave to achieve our aims and aspirations.

Unlike traditional therapies, NLP is a solution-focused brief therapy that offers immediate results and action. This means instead of getting bogged down in problems, and talking though the past, we acknowledge that there are issues that need changing - and we set about doing something about it!


Linda is an INLPTA certifed NLP Trainer and Master Practitioner, Life Coach (AUNLP), and has a BA Hons and PGCE. As an experienced qualified teacher, she can also work with children and young people, and has run confidence classes, learning to learn and revision skills sessions. She also trains and coaches teachers in Accelerated Learning and Emotional Intelligence.


Linda is qualified to run accredited courses in NLP at Diploma, Practitioner and Master Practitioner level. She is fully insured, holds an Enhanced CRB check, and is a member of ANLP.


They do say the only thing that's constant is change.  How would you like to change things for the better? Take control of how you react to people and events.


NLP helps you change your mind, change your attitude, change your beliefs - for better ones that help you live the life you want. You'll get tips and techniques - but more than that - a new way to think. And a new way to be!


You can book an hour's one-to-one session for £50 - or a course. Sometimes one session is all you need!

Or book a course of one-to-ones at a discount.


Group sessions, workshops and courses vary in price, from £15 just look on the website, or ring up and ask!


Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) uses 'whatever works' for your unique needs.


Unlike talking therapies, you don’t need to ‘tell us all about it’. Say briefly what the issue is, and what you want to happen. We focus on the solution – not on the problem itself. So it’s quick and effective, and moves you on. Out of the problem state and into the solution!


We will give you new ways of thinking about things, greater understanding of yourself and ‘how you operate,’ and exercises and techniques to use that will change your life – if you let them! We may use a variety of methods, including hypnosis and practical exercises to help you change your thinking to get you the best results.

  • Having more choices in how you handle life – helping you succeed
  • Challenging beliefs that limit you, getting rid of negative thinking and moving on to a brighter outlook
  • Having tools, techniques and new attitudes to improve your life
  • Learning to cause what happens, instead of being a victim of the effects of other things or people
  • Being in control of yourself and your emotions
  • Taking responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, words and actions, and changing things yourself - for positive results.

We can use NLP:

  • to improve confidence
  • to develop self-belief
  • to combat depression, take control, and help to develop positivity
  • to cure phobias – in one hour
  • to cure problems like compulsive eating and unhelpful habits
  • to help deal with difficult people or situations
  • to set goals and ways to take action to achieve them
  • to help you with other problems that prevent you from enjoying life

Personal Breakthrough: (takes around 4 or 5 hours on average) A more intensely effective approach to overcoming barriers to happiness and success. This involves a process called Memory Resolution, which gets rid of anger, sadness, fear and guilt from the past to enable you to enjoy the present, and move forward with confidence and positivity into your future.


You’ll get a lot out of one hour, and although some problems take longer, even a phobia can be removed in a single session. Book an introductory session, and we can discuss whether a single session, or how many, might resolve things for you.



Introductory session             

(one hour) includes intervention         from £50

Subsequent sessions                             £50
