How Does Counselling Work?

When counselling is successful, you can expect to experience greater self understanding and significant relief and improvement in distressing feelings, thoughts and problematic behaviours. Your confidence in dealing with life challenges should improve alongside feeling happier and more satisfied in life.

Counsellors are trained in theories that can help you understand problematic situations, habits or feelings which cause emotional and psychological discomfort or distress. We can also show you tools and strategies that empower you with the ability to positively address and/or completely overcome problem issues.

At KlearMinds, our experienced counsellors integrate psychotherapy, CBT and coaching techniques into the counselling we provide for you. These additional therapies enable us to tailor the counselling to best suit your learning style and provide you with the greatest opportunity for achieving lasting, positive change, as quickly as possible.

What Type of Therapist Can Provide Counselling Services

Counsellor (Counselor – US spelling): The best counsellor will have a recognised training in Counselling Theory and Skills as well as clinical experience in providing face-to-face Counselling. Historically counsellors typically provided brief interventions on specific problems such as stopping smoking or focused anxiety management. Nowadays many therapists who can provide counselling are also trained psychotherapists. This means they also have the ability to work with more complex and long standing problems. To know what they can offer you, it is important to check their credentials (see below).

Psychotherapist: A psychotherapist will have specific training in psychotherapy theory and skills as well as experience in face to face psychotherapy. Psychotherapy trainings have historically been longer than counselling training and therefore most psychotherapists are able to provide counselling.

Counselling Psychologist: A counselling psychologist has similar training to a Psychotherapist, but additionally will hold a degree in Psychology.

Overcoming Career Anxiety & Work Stress
I had never thought I was someone who would need counselling or therapy, as I had always been very strong. However when my career wasn’t going quite as I had planned it, I found I was becoming very negative and mentally spiralling out of control – in fact turning myself into a victim. Maggie was outstanding at providing me with what I needed, not as a “quick fix” but by giving me the tools to use whenever I may need… Read More

Empower Yourself – Building Self Confidence
Before meeting with Maggie, I had been feeling demotivated, lacking focus and very lonely…. Counselling was something I only considered when I felt there was nothing I could do.

Maggie’s questions…helped me… I now realise… Read More

This was my first experience with counselling. At my age and being a bloke I definitely had to overcome a reluctance to seek help and embarrasment at revealing your struggles and inner self. I won't say it was easy but my counsellor really helped me overcome this so we could make progress on the issues. Recommended.

Amanda is amazing and I highly recommend seeing her. I started seeing her at a time when I was not confident and believing in myself. She was understanding and we talked through many things that were happening in my life. I looked forward to my sessions with Amanda and was sad to say goodbye at my last one. With her help I became more confident and applied for a senior position at work, I went into the interview showing that I am capable of the role and got the job. Amanda, once again thank you so much for everything that you have done for me and what you have been doing for others, it is your invaluable experience and knowledge that have helped up become better in ourselves.

My experience of having therapy with Mita was positive and eye-opening. She is extremely professional, empathetic and a good listener. Therapy is hard but I found Mita to be very supportive; I was especially grateful when I was able to speak with her at one point in-between sessions, when I was having a bit of a crisis. I only stopped going due to the cost, and would recommend Mita as a therapist.

I started seeing Amanda after traditional counselling didn't really help me move forward after the break-up of my marriage. She saw me as often as I needed and gave me tools to help me manage my feelings towards my self and my ex husband. Would go and see her again if I ever needed to

Frequently Asked Questions

What do counselling sessions entail?

Counselling sessions usually involve meeting with a trained counsellor or psychotherapist, in a confidential environment, where you can discuss your concerns. Sessions commonly last about 50 minutes and are conducted on a weekly basis. However, people also can attend sessions that are longer, more frequent or less frequent, depending on the issues they are dealing with and the amount that might suit them best.

Research indicates, that you can get the best results, when you work with a counsellor that really “gets you”. The points below provide a brief description of the type of experience you could expect to have with an effective counsellor.

  1. The counsellor aims to understand the problems you are facing by asking you questions about your situation. You feel the counsellor really understands your situation and what they say makes sense to you personally. You should not feel confused.
  2. At the end of the initial session you feel the counselling work has a clear focus on the outcomes you want and you have a sense that the counsellor can help you achieve them. As counselling progresses, you should be feeling some relief/positivity during and after sessions. You should not be feeling excessively distressed, upset or confused during or after sessions.
  3. The counsellor helps you understand why and where you are getting stuck with problems or situations in your life. You start to gain a better awareness of how your feelings, habits and thinking may be influencing your life. Everything is getting clearer.
  4. Most importantly the counsellor helps you identify concrete steps you can take to move forward in your life, feel better and more in control. This process continues to the point where; you have improved things in your life to a level that feels good for you and you feel confident you can maintain this improvement as you continue into your future.
