What is Counselling?

Counselling is the process of helping and supporting a person to resolve personal, social, or psychological challenges and difficulties.

A professional and well-trained counsellor helps clients to see things more clearly, possibly from a different view-point, and supports clients to focus on feelings, experiences or behaviour that will facilitate positive change.

Counselling is Not:

  • Giving advice.
  • Judgemental.
  • Attempting to sort out the problems of the client as the counsellor determines them.
  • Taking on the counsellor’s own opinions and ways of coping.
  • Getting emotionally involved with the client.
  • Looking at a client's problems from your own perspective, based on your own value system.
