What is Counselling?
The aim of counselling is to provide a safe, confidential and secure space for people to reflect, process emotions and build on different skills for personal growth.
Counsellors create a safe environment for clients to feel connected and be vulnerable to work through life’s challenges. Counsellors are trained to actively listen, express empathy, be congruent (genuine) and always express unconditional positive regard (non-judgement).
Some of the common goals people like to work though in counselling are:
processing and healing grief and trauma
building on communication skills
building on healthier coping strategies
build on healthy relationships
