What counselling is about


Counselling is a working relationship that helps you explore and manage what is happening in your life.

The aim of counselling is to provide an opportunity for you to work towards a more satisfying and resourceful experience of life. Each person's needs are different.

Counselling may be concerned with personal development issues, resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insight and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict, improving relationships with others … or any other issues which crop up in everyday life.

The counsellor's role is to assist you in ways that respect your values, culture, personal resources and capacity for change.
