What is counselling?
Counselling is a talking therapy which provides a space for people to discuss their experiences, issues and feelings with a trained professional.
Counselling involves the counsellor listening to your situation, and exploring with you how what has happened has impacted on your life. Counselling can help you become more self aware, this process can help you to clarify your thoughts and feelings, enabling you to make beneficial, informed choices and decisions.
The counsellor will not judge you, will be impartial and actively listen, creating the safe space for you to share your problems and any emotional pain. A counsellor will also support you to explore other possible sources of help should that be necessary and or appropriate.
