What is Counselling?
Many of us at some point in our lives will have difficulties that are hard to manage. At times we can resolve these ourselves, on other occasions it can be helpful to talk matters through with someone outside the situation who will listen with understanding and objectivity. Counselling aims to enable you to come to terms with a situation, or find solutions, thus enabling you to work towards living a more satisfying and resourceful way of life.
The objectives of counselling will vary according to the client’s individual needs. What Conditions Can Counselling Help?
