What is Counselling
Counselling is a talking therapy which takes place in a safe and confidential setting. It is useful in dealing with life’s changes by helping a person make sense of the way they feel and provides support during that process. Modern day life can bring worry, anxiety, stress and depression which can feel overwhelming and impossible to deal with. This may be through redundancy, retirement, children leaving home, relationship breakdowns, mid-life crisis, bereavement, financial pressures, overcoming addiction, wanting someone to talk to about a particular issue, or wishing to understand yourself better. Counsellors do not judge, instead stay with a person whilst they endeavour to work out what is confusing or seems impossible. By a counsellor actively listening, a true sense of perspective can be gained and reflected back helping a person to see things more clearly and with clarity. Counselling does not involve giving advice or directing a client to take a particular course of action.
By talking openly and freely, in a way that is seldom possible with friends or family, bottled up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief and embarrassment can be expressed. In counselling, these emotions can be explored giving insight into true origins. With this new understanding a person can move from a position of feeling stuck to a feeling of freedom and choice.
