Counselling

What is counselling?

Counselling is a process in which an individual and his/her therapist work together to understand, and bring new light, to the client's experiences. Individuals often seek therapy to attend to a variety of challenges, ranging from day-to-day life trials or life-changing tribulations.

It is very important for you to feel a connection with your therapist. Counselling should be a safe place, where you can let your guard down and be your true self. When you are comfortable with the therapist and counselling environment, you are more likely to explore your feelings and work through challenging topics.
