About Counselling

 

Counselling works towards long term solutions and greater happiness, however it is not an instant fix, it can enrich and change lives.  A non-judgemental approach has a powerful affect; Counsellors who portray empathy, warmth, compassion, honesty and understanding can allow people to realise their potential for living a fuller life, it enables them to find their own answers and take control of their feelings and emotions.  Through being open and honest, people learn to see more clearly and build self esteem.  Counselling can help to turn lives around, help individuals to flourish and relationships to build. Counselling is not about giving advice, it is about learning and realisation.
