What to expect from counselling

Counselling can often involve talking about difficult or painful feelings and, as you begin to face them, you may feel worse in some ways. However, with the help and support of your counsellor, you should gradually start to feel better.

During your counselling sessions, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions. By discussing your concerns with you, the counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of your thought processes and why you are feeling the way you do, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems.

It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.

In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counselling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is required.

There are three main types of counselling that can be used to help a client they are; Psychodynamic counselling, Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and Person-centred counselling.

What is the role of a counsellor

What a counsellor does is a simply question but not an easy one to answer. The role of a counsellor is to create a setting where the client feels safe to share there troubles in a non- judgemental setting. This in turn can start the process of improving your issue and just having someone to listen is very therapeutic.
