What is Counselling?

Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose.

It is the counsellor’s role to listen attentively and patiently to the client’s concerns in order to understand these concerns from the client’s point of view. Counsellors will help clients to see things more clearly, possibly from a different perspective, helping them to manage problems and meet challenges with increased confidence.

Counselling is a way of reducing confusion or of enabling choice or change.

Counselling is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be “sent” for counselling.
