What is Counselling?
Many of us experience times in our lives when
problems become too difficult to sort out alone.
Life can throw many things at us that produce such a
huge shock to our sense of peace and security that
we struggle to get over or come to terms with them.
You may be dealing with a particular loss, crisis or
life transition, struggling to cope with
relationship difficulties, or experiencing general
feeling of unhappiness, discontent or confusion.
Counselling offers an opportunity for you to explore
your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential
setting, with someone who is trained
and committed, someone who won't judge you, who can
look at your problems with another pair of eyes and
offer another perspective to help you achieve
your chosen outcome.
The overall aim of counselling is
to provide an opportunity for you to work towards
living in a way you find more satisfying and
resourceful. The objectives of each individual will
vary according to their own needs, one size doesn't
fit all! Counselling may be
concerned with developmental issues, addressing and
resolving specific problems, making decisions,
coping with crisis, developing personal insight and
knowledge, working through feelings of inner
conflict or improving relationships with others.
How long does it take?
Sessions last up to one hour, many issues can be
resolved in short-term work, whilst others may
require longer-term therapy.
