|Counselling is an opportunity to look at concerns or
issues that are creating difficulties in our lives and
to explore what we might do to change our lives in a
safe and supported environment.
If you haven't experienced counselling before,
you may have some questions.
If we want to see ourselves, we look into a mirror.
- What exactly is Counselling?
- How does it work?
- Will I be given advice?
- Is it for me?
- Is it confidential?
- Is it expensive?
In counselling you are encouraged to gently look
into the "mirror of yourself" so that you can process
that information; untangle and understand those
thoughts and those feelings that make up "you".
With this reflection, you can begin to see more
clearly. You can consider changes you may like to make
to promote a happier life for yourself and those
Counselling is all about you being yourself and
getting to know yourself.
Sometimes it's really good to talk with someone
outside the situation. Counselling lets you work
through your experiences. The counsellor will listen
and help you make sense of things and you will learn
new ways to cope or change. This is a free service.
