Q. How will I benefit from Counselling?
A. Counselling offers a variety of positive benefits which can enhance your life greatly. Exploring your thoughts with a professional, non-judgemental counsellor can make you feel less alone and more able to sort out your thoughts in a productive way. When thoughts are disorganised, it can be challenging to make good choices: counselling is a collaborative and confidential relationship, which works to develop a realistic plan to help you move forward and grow to achieve the results you are looking for.
Q. I have never seen a counsellor, what is the process?
Q. What do counselling sessions actually involve?
A. At the first session, which may take one hour or longer, the counsellor asks you about yourself and your background to build up a clear picture of you and your ‘stuckness’. You may also discuss what you want counselling to achieve.
At counselling sessions, which are usually held once a week, you decide, with the counsellor’s guidance, what you discuss and the pace at which you discuss it. Your counsellor may suggest exercises or homework that maybe helpful for you to work through between sessions.
