What Takes Place During Counselling?

Many people seek counselling to process experiences, thoughts and feelings, as well as learn strategies to manage various challenges. Conversations are used as a platform for discovery and growth, enabling individuals to overcome barriers that can hinder them from leading happier lives. Discussions can reveal blind spots, identification of mindsets and behaviours that can benefit from change. Evidence based techniques are used to equip individuals with tools to better manage emotions, adapt thought patterns, transform their lives and thrive.

Counselling provides a safe environment for individuals to speak with an independent and unbiased third-party, where the Counsellor or Therapist can help individuals make sense of how they feel by unraveling intertwined emotions and thoughts. This process empowers clients with greater clarity and objectivity in making decisions that can lead to life changing outcomes.
