COUNSELLING

DEFINITION

Counselling and coaching can be hard to differentiate sometimes. While coaching tends to focus on the present and the future, counselling is a therapeutic process that also helps the individual to analyse and work on any underlying issues and trauma from the past.

 

It’s the process of working with individuals to help them deal with mental or emotional distress, and understand and solve painful memories. Counselling focuses on assisting the client to identify, talk about, explore and understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviours and to work out what action they want to take and why they have such concerns or personal problems.

 

People may choose to speak to a counsellor/therapist because they feel they cannot speak to their other half/friends/family about their personal issues, or they may simply wish to speak to a professional with an objective viewpoint.

THE COUNSELLING RELATIONSHIP

In counselling, the relationship between the client and the counsellor is an essential part in the process similar as with Coaching. The counsellor will encourage the clients to look at aspects of their lives; their relationships and themselves, which they may not have thought of or felt able to face before.

 

Counsellors typically do not give advice, but rather they provide insight into the client’s thoughts and behaviours.

 

Counselling sessions are hold in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space where you can openly share your past events that may carry a different range of emotions with it such as shame, anger or sadness.
