What is counselling?
Counselling is a process in which you can talk about areas of your life which are causing you distress. A counsellor is a person who is trained in listening and the experience of being heard and understood can be a great support to assist you in your own understanding. As you learn to understand yourself more, it is possible to improve how you relate to and understand others.
Counselling can help you make sense of the feelings you experience and enable you to become more aware and feel more confident about how to manage difficulties.
This can be achieved by a counsellor who neither judges, nor gives advice. A counsellor will help you to discover your own potential by finding your own answers and making your own decisions.
