What is counselling?

Counselling involves the development of a relationship between a client and a trained professional that focuses on the client's concerns and difficulties. It is a process in which individuals have the opportunity to improve upon their understanding of themselves, including their patterns of thoughts, behaviours, feelings, and the ways in which these may have been problematic in their lives. Counselling can assist you to identify your own personal resources and capabilities, which are sometimes lost or buried in times of confusion and anxiety. Throughout this process you will be encouraged, supported and empowered to look at yourself from a different perspective. The aim is not only to help you cope with a current issue or crisis, but to do so in a way that produces learning for the future, so you can feel more in charge of your life.

We offer career counselling, family counselling, child and adolescent counselling, marital counselling and pre marital counselling and individual cousnelling.

How does counselling work

Counselling is a dialog. It is not a teaching session. You present information, the counsellor offers ideas about that information and helps you explore different options available about the situation. Your counsellor can tell you what's probably going on with you, what seems to be happening, but it is only 'you' who can say if he is right. The process would help you to have clarity for yourself.

What are the benefits of counselling
  • it can offer a supportive non-judgmental and confidential setting in which you can explore any issue
  • it can help you see issues more objectively
  • it can help you express your feelings and come to terms with past experiences
  • it can help you take control of your life and become more assertive

How long does therapy take to work

Not easy to answer. Some people find that a few sessions make a real difference - just by gaining some new perspective about a problem. But most people find it more productive to be in therapy for quite a few months of weekly sessions . There is no particular time table or schedule. Apart from the counsellor's skills it also depends on The openness, readiness and commitment of the client The nature of trauma one has undergone

​The coping abilities of each individual and, of course
