You are here: Home What is counselling ?
“Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and to help you improve things” (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)
Is Therapy or Counselling an instant cure?
It normally takes a few sessions for you to become aware of changes and improvements in your life. Sometimes counselling and therapy can be quite difficult at the beginning but you can rest assured that with a qualified counsellor you will always be in a safe place at the end of your counselling session.
Does Counselling and Therapy work for everyone?
Different people will get different results from their therapy experience. Recent studies from the International Centre for Clinical Excellence (ICCE, www.centreforclinicalexcellence.com) showed that 80% of clients in counselling and therapy end up in a better place than those who don’t seek help.
