There can be periods in our lives when the people or support networks we would normally turn to for help are neither available nor appropriate. During such times, counselling or psychotherapy can be an alternative resource for you to draw upon.
In counselling, the process of talking through sensitive or painful issues can help restore a sense of order in our minds. This can significantly reduce anxiety levels. Having things clarified by a skilled listener can in itself bring relief and a fresh understanding.
In Person Centred Counselling, the counsellor takes the lead from the client. Significance is placed upon the belief that that the ‘client’ is the ‘expert’ in their own experience, and that the client has the ability to develop their own potential.
