What is Counselling

Counselling is essentially a lively, human and personal experience between two people. In particular;

It is about helping you to discover more about yourself.

It involves being prepared to share some of your deepest and most uncomfortable feelings and can be both comforting and challenging.

It is different from other kinds of help, where, appropriately at times diagnosis or assessment is made.

Counselling is not about judging or minimising your problems but about valuing and respecting the efforts you are making to try and work things out.

Counselling does not claim to be the answer to all human difficulties, but aims to help you find your own answers, by becoming more in charge of your life.

It is a contract between yourself and a counsellor to work in a safe, comfortable and confidential environment.
