What is counselling?
I define counselling as a term used for many talking therapies. Counselling provides you with the time to explore, feel and share your concerns or behaviours. That have a negative impact on your life. It offers you a place where you can learn to listen and understand yourself. Both your body and mind give you information.
Short term therapy (4-12) sessions is often used to help people deal with emotions they are finding difficult to cope with. Emotions that have arisen due to a relationship break down, a loss of a job a family member or having been a witness to an difficult event. To gain the most from short term therapy weekly sessions are advisable or fortnightly session if other circumstances make week difficult.
Long term therapy is used for individuals with long standing emotional difficulties. A person can expect to be in therapy for at least 1 year. Sessions will be held weekly and in some cases twice a week at the start of the therapy. Regular reviews will be carried out. To ensure the individual is still being helped.
