Welcome to Active Listening Therapies, an established counselling service in Newark on Trent. If you are considering counselling but haven’t found anything you feel comfortable with yet, hopefully we can help.

We opened in 2017 and have since developed the counselling service to cater for young people, adults, schools and businesses requiring employee assistance. You have the choice of female or male counsellors who work as full-time therapists.

Counselling is also known as talking therapy. The process starts with you sharing your thoughts, worries and circumstances. We then consider causes and trigger points and how we can re-address them, followed by postive coping strategies. Throughout our relationship we will hold you in positive regard – you wont be judged on anything you bring to a session.

Hopefully our site will answer some of your questions… why not come for a consultation to see how counselling can work for you? You’ll find more information about our services below.

The last few years have redefined how we live our life, and the world is different place. It can feel like there are new challenges to deal with each week.

When considering counselling, the hardest (and most important) part is finding the right counsellor. Come for a consultation, and see how you feel before you commit to exploring your circumstances.

In today’s post pandemic society many families have had to adapt to new norms which might include disrupted schedules, reduced finances, multiple jobs and choices which may not be ideal.

What ever the situation may be, we have the time and space to discuss, and begin to make sense of tangled emotions, health worries and day-to-day challenges getting the way of a stress free life.
