Counselling is not about giving advice; you are the expert on your life and the counsellor is there to support and guide you through whatever you choose to bring to sessions.
Counselling isn’t only for people going through specific difficulties or illnesses; anyone can benefit from counselling and the opportunity to talk and be listened to.
Counsellors frequently attend counselling themselves as they know how beneficial it can be.
You don’t have to talk about in-depth aspects of your life or anything you don’t feel comfortable about; counsellors are trained to work at a pace you’ll find comfortable.
A counsellor isn’t someone who has power over you and they aren’t in charge of what you do or say; counselling is a unique relationship based on mutual trust, respect and with an equal balance of power.
