What is counselling and how can it help

Counselling is a talking therapy, based on psychological theories used to help focus on any emotional or psychological needs, that you feel unable to work through alone. As humans we think and feel emotions which helps us to become more self-aware. When problems arise, our thinking process can become distorted, consequently affecting our emotions and making us feel uncomfortable. Therapy offers you a chance to explore your thoughts and feeling in a safe place.

Sometimes we may need counselling to work through some issues that we have lived with throughout our life, that may have originated in childhood, sometimes it may be that we feel stressed with home life or work and feel unsure of how to deal with a situation. Whatever the reason for wanting counselling, having someone to listen without feeling judged can help us to explore our issues in a safe, non-judgemental and accepting environment.
