What is counselling
Counselling involves helping individuals make changes to the way they feel, think and behave and assists in improving wellness, mental health, communication and relationships. This is achieved through a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. This “space” supports clients to reflect upon and explore their challenges whilst being supported in making the changes they want to make.
Life decisions, blocks and achieving goals
Counsellors help individuals work through a range of personal challenges and situations. Counsellors help individuals manage anxiety or depression that can impact on their day to day lives. It may involve helping people to understand relationship difficulties they are experiencing an improve communication. Counsellor’s help individuals cope with life changes and life decisions as well as identifying blocks that hold individuals back from achieving personal happiness.
A friendly professional
Therapy works within an agreed set of boundaries. Counsellors are not “professional friends” more a friendly professional. Although the relationship between counsellor and client is a very special one, the use of boundaries allows the counsellor to work with objectivity and in a safe and professional manner.
