What are the benefits of Counselling?

Counselling can benefit many people regardless of age, gender and societal difference.

It is a service that provides a confidential, non- judgemental space for you to talk about life events, feelings, emotions relationships, thoughts and patterns of behaviour with someone who is patient and understanding, experienced and qualified in facilitating a process to help you move forward, at a time when you feel you need it most in your life.

Whether you want to talk to someone who is able to listen without judgement, understand and value your experience or whether you want to work together through interventions aimed at creating positive change, the counsellor will do their best to help you look at your issue and identify the most suitable way forward for you. This may be resolving your difficulties or looking at new ways of coping.

A client - counsellor relationship

A counselling relationship can be beneficial as it involves talking to someone who is independent of friends, family and/or the situation. The client's personal life-experiences belong to them and are shared in counselling when or if the client feels comfortable. Which is why a confidential, trustworthy relationship with someone who is professionally trained and qualified, is essential to benefit this process.

You will not be asked to share anything that you don't want to share, your experience past or present belongs to you and the counsellor respects this and facilitates a helping process at your own pace.
