What is Counselling

Counselling is a talking therapy, which facilitates movement to finding own answers for specific issues, and also promotes growth and self awareness for personal development.

Why Counselling

Counselling is secure, non-judgemental space, where specific issues can be explored, and emotional difficulties shared. Counselling does not offer a diagnosis, but will assist in finding your own answers, and discovering a deeper understanding.

Counselling facilitates personal development, by increasing self awareness.

The British Army's salute is given with the right hand palm facing forwards with the fingers almost touching the beret. The salute is given to acknowledge the Queen's commission. A salute may not be given unless a soldier is wearing his regimental headdress, for example a Beret, Caubeen, Tam o' Shanter, Glengarry, field service cap or peaked cap. 

If a soldier or officer is not wearing headdress then he or she must come to attention instead of giving/returning the salute. The subordinate salutes first and maintains the salute until the superior has responded in kind.
