Counselling is a way of addressing and resolving issues. It can involve identifying options and choosing between them, learning new skills to cope better with problems, gaining greater understanding of what is occurring, or being supported while recovering from some significant life event. Counselling is a collaborative process that involves the development of a unique, confidential healing relationship. The counsellor acts as a facilitator in helping clients to understand feelings, behaviours, relationships with others, situations, choices and decisions. Further, the counsellor offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental context in which clients can: 

  • Gain clarity and perspective on the issue;
  • Receive the support they need to resolve issues and make decisions;
  • Deal with negative feelings and emotions
