Counselling Is:

Counselling is not about changing who you are, it’s about understanding who you are, what you want and making informed choices. One of the most important aspects of working with a counsellor is to know that they understand you, your world and what you want. If they don’t, counselling will be disconnected and unproductive. The Frequently Asked Questions and Articles of Interest pages might be helpful.

Feelings

Counselling Addresses Feelings Yes, we do talk about feelings, because how you feel is important. You want to feel better about yourself, your actions, life and others. Love, joy, happiness, fulfillment, satisfaction, peace, they are all feelings, ones that we desire. If we are aware of them (also the negative ones; sorrow, anger, frustration, hate…), they can help guide your choices and actions. Sucking it up by ignoring or denying feelings is just not a good long-term strategy. Knowing your feelings is a strength and will help you understand what you want and don’t want. Also, you can use them to assess and make choices as situations and life unfolds.

Is Counselling Easy?

Is what you’re going through easy? Counselling is much more constructive, with a higher chance of positive change than doing more of what’s not working. Too often the focus is on pain reduction rather than dealing with the cause.

Is it Worth the Effort?

Yes! If you want change, invest in it and work toward it, it will happen.
