What is counselling?
- Counselling is a "talking therapy" that takes place in a safe, non-judgemental environment.
- It provides you with an opportunity to discuss your concerns with an independent person.
- Although a human relationship and at times reminiscent of friendship the counselling relationship is strictly professional.
- Counsellors provide challenges and information, but do not advise you on how to live your life.
