Sitting across from Sam, being in her expansively accepting company, comfort and challenge, over time I have come to triumph in the person that I am. Where I used to think I housed and waged war with disastrously incompatible ‘issues’ around sexuality, religion, suppressed emotion and unworthiness, I have begun to feel full of treasures that I get to spend the rest of my life appreciating.R.H. Stourbridge
Why consider therapy?
Ancora Counselling offers counselling and private therapy services for a variety of issues you maybe faced with now or have experienced in an earlier period of your life.
You may be looking at this site as you enter a period of change in your life. You might have just had a child, or your children might have just left home. You may be readjusting after the break down of your relationship or be thrown into turmoil at the start of one. Someone you know, and love may be very ill or has died. You may be finding difficult to reconcile problems in your past or feel unable to move forward. Its times like these that we can question what is the meaning of my life? If you feel like this then counselling or therapy can be of real benefit to you.
A non-judgemental service
Friends and family can support us through difficult times but a therapeutic relationship is unique in what it offers. It provides you with a relationship where you are heard and not judged, where you are accepted as an individual and where your issues can be explored and resolved in a safe and confidential environment.
Committing to therapy
The therapeutic relationship can feel daunting at times. It relies on a commitment from both you and your therapist. As the relationship between us develops and trust deepens you will become aware of how unconscious thoughts may have held you back. Through gentle challenge and exploration you can come to a new understanding of yourself and begin to make different choices and decisions.

What is your Cancellation Policy?
There is a 48hr cancellation policy. I will require 48hrs notice if you are unable to make an appointment and are unable to reschedule with the same week.
How many therapy sessions do I need?
In order for this to be assessed we need to meet you in person, find out as much as we can about you and your problem and assess what kind of therapy would be of most benefit.
The number of sessions you require depends on several factors such as:
– The length of time of your problem has existed.
– What goals you wish to achieve from counselling?
We will be able to advise you in the first session. Some clients feel comfortable with an idea of how many sessions they will require while others prefer to come along for an unspecified amount of time. The choice is really yours and then agreed between us.
