counselling is a special form of communication with an explicit contract, where a trained counsellor helps another person in a confidential and non-judgemental manner. it is a process where individuals can address and clarify their problems and issues. Counselling entails active listening, guided by theories about the causes of problem and methods needed to help the individual, yet recognising that each individual is unique with unique experiences.
Reasons for seeking counselling?
Counselling is not only for people with mental health problems but can help with many difficult life problems - from coping with traumatic experiences and events, to dealing with depression and anxiety or managing harmful emotions and behaviours.
What Benefits can be Expected?
Letting things out that you have been keeping inside can be a cathartic experience, allowing you to let go of the feelings you have been holding onto. Speaking aloud and verbalising your thoughts and emotions, not only allows you a different perspective, but also helps you gain further insight into your internal thoughts allowing you to confront and reflect on your feeling and thought process. Based on the principle of self empowerment, counselling will help to empower you in everyday life by implementing the coping skills and strategies learnt in counselling.
