How counselling can help you
For some clients just having a safe space and a confidential environment can be the catalyst to positive changes.
Counselling is a process in which the client is enabled to talk openly about their concerns without being judged or ridiculed. The therapist aids the client to uncover their own insights and understanding of the problem. Through this therapeutic process the client begins to learn how to resolve potential future issues.
Counselling is a very unique and subjective experience as no two clients will experience counselling the same way. However, through this therapeutic relationship the client will gain a greater understanding of self and others. This in turn provides the client with tools to deal with any future stresses or anxieties.
Although counselling is not a panacea for all emotional or psychological issues, it can help with most of them. Usually the counsellor will be able to tell you in the first session if counselling is the best route or not.
