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.

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.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
