Counselling
Counselling offers time and space in a confidential setting for prisoners to talk about the problems and difficulties that may affect their every day living such as: anger, bereavement, anxiety, stress, difficulty with relationships, emotional problems, past abuse or just the desire to change.

Counselling can help prisoners to help themselves. Through counselling prisoners may come to have a better understanding of themselves, their actions, their thoughts and their feelings and is available by referral to any member of staff.
