How counselling can help


Counselling can help you cope with powerful emotions and develop better relationships. It can help you face situations that might be beyond your control. Counselling can also help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself, of others, and to create new meaning in your life.

Counselling is a process through which you may safely examine whatever thoughts and feelings are most important to you in that moment. The process is a confidential dialogue between you and your counsellor and is focussed on goals that are meaningful to you. The exploratory process of counselling can bring relief from distress and help you develop successful strategies to live the best life you can.

The success of counselling depends on the quality of the relationship between client and counsellor. During counselling you may face some very difficult thoughts and feelings. It’s important to know that you’ll be with a responsible and trusted professional who respects you.
