WHAT IS COUNSELLING?

Counselling, also called psychotherapy, is the process of meeting with a therapist to resolve problematic behaviours, beliefs, feelings, relationship issues, and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body). Beginning therapy can be a big step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible—no matter what challenges you may be facing. Through therapy, you can change self-destructive behaviours and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more.

How effective is Counselling?

Therapy helps you gain a different perspective on problems and issues. Therapy provides a safe, non-judgemental and respectful environment. Counselling can help you regain wellbeing and balance in your life. Counselling often makes clients think more clearly and make better decisions

What are the benefits of counselling?

Counselling can help you reflect and make sense of difficult life events and find a way to move forward. Some of the benefits can include:

  • Talking to someone neutral, outside of your immediate situation, can show you a different perspective and help you find a way forward.

  • Talking with a trained counsellor who is skilled at listening can help you to process difficult thoughts and feelings.

  • Sharing your worries helps you feel less alone with the problem.

  • You can gain a better understanding of yourself and a clearer sense of what you want and need.

  • You can practice communicating more clearly and honestly in the safety of the counselling relationship.

  • Counselling can help improve your relationships and your ability to communicate.
