For most of life's challenges counselling or psychotherapy can help. Using some of the latest findings in neuroscientific research, we work with clients to identify the most suitable approach for them and their individual needs. Together, we take the first steps towards choosing the right path for each client in the face of the unique challenges in their life.
And we know that the first steps can sometimes be the hardest.
The familiar phrase 'crossing the Rubicon' - to pass a point of no return - originates in history as far back as 49 BC. At that time the River Rubicon protected Rome from civil war but in an ultimate act of courage and revolution, Julius Caesar's army successfully crossed the Rubicon to descend on Rome. This very act changed the course of history. Caesar achieved victory in the Roman civil war and sent the city's existing leaders fleeing in fear.
The phrase 'crossing the Rubicon' has survived to this day to refer to anyone who passes the point of no return by embarking upon a course of action which will lead to an often risky, possibly revolutionary and ultimately life-changing series of events.
Taking the decision to make changes in your life, or even just to share with someone else how you are really feeling, isn't always easy. It may be risky and it may require courage, but we know that if you are looking into counselling then your decision may already have been made. Perhaps you have already crossed your own personal Rubicon. Or maybe you are still stuck on the bank, thinking it's too risky or unable to see a way, but simultaneously acutely aware that you don't want to stay where you are.
Rubicon Counselling Gloucester can accompany you in taking the first steps into a new life.

What benefits can be expected?
