What Is Counselling?

 

 

 

 

So, the biggest question you might have is-

What exactly is counselling?

Counselling is somewhere where you will be able to express whatever is on your mind, to speak about any concern you might have. Counselling will provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to speak about things that are troubling you. 

It is the opportunity to :

  • be able to speak about something that you may have never spoken about before,

  • be able to speak about something that perhaps you have difficulty speaking about,

  • be able to speak about something happening currently in your life or that may have happened years ago,

  • learn coping skills and strategies in order to manage a difficult period or issue,

  • speak about how current issues may be affecting you,

  • engage in personal growth and personal development. 

In short, if you have anything on your mind that you want to try and understand better, something you want to cope with, or something you want to talk about to be able to move past it, then counselling could be for you.

The main goal of counselling is for you to be able to live a healthier and more positive life.
