Myths and Truths about Counselling

Counselling is.....

  • A skilled activity, helping you to help yourself
  • Talking to a professional with a qualification
  • An intervention of proven effectiveness
  • A comfortable private environment where you can talk in confidence

    Counselling is not....
  • Tea and sympathy
  • Someone telling you what to do
  • Being sent somewhere to see someone because you have a problem
  • Just for difficulties that are really severe or have troubled you for years

    So what is Counselling?

    Being human means being self-aware and having the capability to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding. Our thought processes rely on far more than instinct alone. Because of this, there is scope for the way we think to become a problem and to affect our emotions. Today, the art of talking therapies such as counselling are used to help people come to terms with any problems they are facing, with the ultimate aim of overcoming them. As a counsellor, I am not there to sit you down and tell you what to do - instead I will encourage you to talk about what's bothering you in order to uncover any root causes, help you identify your specific ways of thinking and understand your emotions.
