COUNSELLING

Counselling and Therapy

Counselling or therapy is a way of looking at and understanding our daily behaviour and contact with others.

The counselling setting provides a place in which it is possible to listen and hear what is being said and what is not being said.

The counsellor or therapist will listen with you and help you consider what is being said.

When it is possible to be aware of needs and feelings it then becomes possible to make informed decisions and changes in behaviour.

Often this process is accompanied by difficulty and discomfort but can lead to a of change or growth and more fulfilling relationships with those around us.
