Counselling is a form of ‘talking therapy’. The main underlying premise of the treatment is that talking through issues in a safe, confidential, exploratory relationship, with someone non-judgmental, who is trained to help, can assist in healing the mind and emotions. Many practitioners nowadays will also recognise the links between psychological and physical health.
Counsellling can also provide valuable support in navigating through current stressful situations; gaining fresh insights into the root causes of problems and generally moving forward in life in new ways.
The best way to find out if the treatment could be helpful for you is to speak to the individual practitioner at the clinic.
