There are often times in life where we find our selves needing support, some times we feel we cannot get that support, or want to share our problems with our friends or family members. Counselling becomes a space for you to talk about the issues you feel you need support with. Talking to someone, knowing that what you share and talk about is kept confidential is one element of counselling and psychotherapy. Another is that you will be speaking to a mental health professional who will be able to support you, guide you, listen to you, to help you get back in touch with your life and how you feel about yourself. With your counsellor, you can explore your issues and problems to help get a better understanding of what created them, learning to accept what's happened and how that may have changed us as a person, then inviting in a new way of thinking. Re-framing how we think about ourselves and situations is another vital element of changing our lives for the better. The final element is that your feelings will be valued and taken seriously. Counselling is a non-judgemental, empathic space for your feelings to be shared, respected and supported.
