Counselling allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings they encounter in a safe, confidential environment. It is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.
Counselling can be useful for anyone who wants to explore the way they’re thinking or feeling further, as well as anyone experiencing a problem or issue they are keen to resolve. People may choose to speak to a counsellor because they feel they cannot speak to their other half/friends/family about such personal issues, or they may simply wish to speak to a professional with an objective viewpoint.
Counselling is there to change your experience of life. It is about learning an understanding that gives you insight, clarity, peace and freedom, even in the midst of challenging circumstance. Insight is the key to learning, transformation, and change.
While counsellors may not give you concrete advice or a checklist of things to do to feel better, what they will do is help you uncover your own insight and understanding of your problems providing you with the tools which will help you to resolve them on your own.
If you would like to explore if counselling could benefit you I offer a free half hour telephone consultation.
