Counselling is an opportunity to talk about difficult issues and situations – and your thoughts and feelings about them – in a safe and confidential environment with a trained professional who will listen in an accepting and non-judgmental way.
The types of issues that clients typically bring to counselling include:
Look at those areas in your life that are causing you distress
Recognise what inner resources and external support you have
Identify what further resources and internal support you can get for yourself
Develop a different approach to your life and to those around you.
Sometimes, counselling simply means that you are able to see the same situation in a new light, which in itself helps. The counsellor will not give you advice, or act for you, but may suggest other sources of professional help.
