What is counselling and how can it help?

The counselling process is one in which you have an opportunity for a private, face-to-face discussion with a concerned, highly skilled counsellor for the purpose of resolving your situation.

Your counsellor will be an active participant in this problem-solving process, asking questions, making suggestions and helping you to perceive the situation in a different light. Counselling is an active process, intended to be short-term, and specifically directed towards resolving the problems that brought you to counselling.

There are times in life when we all experience ‘problems with living’ which we don’t seem able to handle on our own.

Whether it is a marital problem or a child having difficulty at school, a troubled adolescent, or a situation of substance abuse, spending a few hours with a professional counsellor can be immensely helpful. The earlier you seek help for a problem, the better chance you have to resolve it.
