What is counselling?

Counselling is an informed dialogue or discussion between a counsellor and the person being counselled which typically:

  • aims to help the person being counselled to identify those issues, feelings and circumstances in his or her life which are causing, or contributing to, concern and unhappiness
  • endeavours to provide the person being counselled with options and methods to help them come to terms with and, where possible, resolve those issues or concerns
  • often leads to the person being counselled coping or dealing with those issues and their life circumstances in a more constructive and positive way.
