Counselling is a talking therapy that aims to improve an individual’s well-being and mental health. Counselling allows people to explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential environment with a trained professional.
Common subjects that can be addressed are:
- Anxiety / Stress
- Illness / Chronic Pain
Counselling can help you discover new insight and understanding about yourself as well as work out new ways of approaching situations. A counsellor is not there to tell you what to do but to work alongside you in building a trusting relationship and encourage you through your difficulties.
Counselling varies for each individual and, dependant on your problems, the therapy may be for a number of weeks, months or years. Whether short-term or long-term therapy, you will meet your counsellor regularly, usually once a week, and sessions are 50 minutes.
