What is counselling?
Counselling is a helping service that provides a safe, confidential and supportive environment; an environment where a person experiencing distress can come and seek some relief by talking about their situation. Talking through feelings and emotions, and feeling really understood can often help a person understand things more clearly. The process of counselling itself usually involves some changes for the person; this could be a change in the way that they perceive or feel about themselves or about things in the world around them. It may also help them to change unwanted behaviors. A person can develop new strategies for living and become more self-aware, self-accepting and more directed in life.
Why have counselling?
People come into counselling for all sorts of reasons, usually however the person is experiencing issues as a result of some form of distress. This can be ‘emotional’ or ‘psychological’ distress and is usually related to one or more of the following; - anxiety/stress, low self-esteem, bereavement, depression, relationship issues, ability to cope with home and/or work life, long-term illness, and trauma due to abuse, or witnessing/surviving a traumatic experience.
