What is Counselling

There are many different types of experiences that are difficult for both young people and adults to cope with. Most of the time we just try our best to get on with life and cope the best way that we can, yet on occasions, we find it more difficult to cope due to certain events and situations. It is at times like this, that it can help to talk through what is happening in a safe, secure and confidential environment. Counselling involves the counsellor helping the client to work through some difficult or painful emotional, behavioural or relationship problems. Counselling can help develop alternative more balanced ways of thinking, therefore helping the client to resolve or reduce emotional conflict.
