Counselling gives you time and space to explore any issue that is
of concern to you. Counsellors are specially trained to listen attentively
and provide a supportive, non-judgmental, confidential environment
where you have the opportunity to engage in self-reflection, with a
focus on your wellbeing and personal growth.
Coming for counselling can take courage as it involves facing up to
your difficulties and asking someone else for help. It is not a sign
of weakness, but rather a sign that you are taking steps to address
any problems that you are facing.
What issues can you bring to counselling?
People come to counselling for a variety of reasons. Most counselling
clients are ordinary people, struggling with common, everyday issues.
Though the list is not exhaustive, these are some of the issues that
clients bring with them to counselling:
- Relationship difficulties
- Self image or identity
- Self-esteem and confidence issues
- Coping with illness
- Work and career challenges
- Fears or Panic
- Phobias or Obsessions
- Guilt or shame
- Parenting issues
- Unable to find enjoyment despite success
- Feeling ‘stuck’
Some people may have more than one issue that they would like to deal
with and counsellors are experienced in working in ways that allow
clients to separate their issues and work through their difficulties
in their own way. No issue is too big or too small.
How can counselling
Counselling helps you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings and
behaviour and to identify how they can be interlinked. It can:
provide support for you at times of crisis or change
help you to resolve feelings of denial, guilt and shame
help you to deal with events from your past
help you to access and harness your own hidden resources
help you find new direction
help you to find solutions or set goals or stay motivated
help you to accept yourself, build your confidence and find more positive
ways to deal with life’s challenges
