About Counselling

Counselling is a way of exploring your thoughts and feelings with the support of another person.The counsellor will help you to clarify your thoughts and feelings,and to become more aware of thoughts and feelings that you may have.
The counsellor may help you to see patterns, or repetitions, in your thoughts and feelings,that may be affecting how you go through life.
Sometimes, it may be helpful to look at things that have happened in your past, to see how they are affecting you now.
Individual Counselling focusses on you and how you can grow and develop.
It takes place in a setting that is private, and where confidentiality is respected.
While counsellors differ in their approaches, generally the process of counselling involves the client and the counsellor sitting together for a certain amount of time (for example 50 minutes), on a regular basis (for example once a week),for an agreed period of time (this can be a few weeks or a longer period).During this time the client may speak, or remain silent, for some or all of the session. In general, the counsellor will support and encourage the client to become aware of their thoughts and feelings,with the aim of helping the client to gain greater understanding of his or her self and to use this understanding in their life.

What Conditions Can it Help?

Counselling can help a range of conditions where your thoughts and feelings, and your reactions to your experiences, are involved.
