What is counselling?
The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy definition is:
“Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance their wellbeing.”
It’s good to talk – simply talking to someone about our problems can really help us come to terms with them. Most of us can deal with and accept changes and their problems and move on but sometimes there are situations that are too difficult and overwhelming, and that is when talking can make such a difference.
Talking to a counsellor is an opportunity to focus on your thoughts and feeling in the presence of a trained professional in time and space outside your situation.
