When you write or talk about your problem and express your feelings in a safe, private, confidential and non-judgmental atmosphere, it is a relieving experience in itself. The counsellor will then help you to understand yourself and the problem that you are facing. Counselling is a process in which regular discussions and sharing of thoughts, fears, and feelings with a counsellor can help you to understand and resolve what is troubling you whether it comes from circumstances, other people, or yourself.
It can, therefore, assist you to make decisions or changes which could enable you to lead your life better. Counselling provides an opportunity to gain new perspectives and can encourage progress towards a sense of greater well-being.
