How does counselling work?
Counselling gives you the opportunity to talk about your thoughts and feelings and in doing so helps you to find solutions or acceptance to the problems you are facing.
Having someone with whom you can talk to freely, who is not personally involved and will not judge or give opinions can be very helpful. As you work with a trained therapist you will begin to look at your life in ways you may not have considered before. You will gain a greater sense of self awareness.
Exploring the assumptions you have about yourself, others and life may reveal how these thoughts are holding you back. During therapy you can focus on the present but may also explore your past to understand how you came to be who you are today.
Counselling offers you a space to set goals, identify barriers and find new coping strategies that will help move your life forward.
