It is a process whereby clients learn how to make decisions and formulate new ways of behaving, feeling, and thinking. It’s a short term, interpersonal, theory-based, helping profession. Counselling is not just giving advice/making a judgment, but helping the client to see clearly the root of problems.
It aims at discussing those problems which are related to personal or socio-psychological issues, causing emotional pain or mental instability. The counsellors listen to the problems of the client with empathy and discuss it, in a confidential environment.
Counselling has been important seemingly since the dawn of society. Mental health issues can severely curtail an individual’s ability to lead a fulfilling life. They can cloud relationships, family life and careers. Mental health conditions cut across economic, social and racial groups. Issues such as depression and anxiety can affect people of all ages, from children to the elderly.
Counselling is an option that far too many people shy away from or never even consider at all. Don’t let yourself or your loved ones fall into that camp any longer. If there’s a problem you’re facing, by all means, seek professional help so that you can finally put it behind you.
