Counselling is a term often used to describe ‘talking therapies’ which provide a safe and supportive environment to explore and overcome any problems or issues that you are experiencing that may be the cause of emotional anguish.
A benefit of accessing counselling is that you can talk freely about your difficulties with a trained professional who will be able to look at your problems from a neutral, unbiased and balanced perspective, unlike for instance a family member or friend. It will give you a safe and regular space for you to discuss and explore your difficult feelings. The counsellor will support you, respect your views and help you realise your own insights and work out strategies to enable you to move forward positively.
In most cases, it will take a number of sessions before counselling starts to make a big difference and to make the best use of therapy it does require commitment. It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with a practitioner who will acknowledge your feelings and help you reach a positive solution.
People access therapy for a variety of reasons, however some of the most common issues people seek help with include:
The above list is not exhaustive and counselling is always person centred and tailored to the individual client’s needs.
