A counselor can provide a compassionate and non-judgmental presence that enables you to develop trust in yourself and your experience. It is not always possible for significant others to provide the degree of objectivity necessary to focus just on your needs. Nor is it appropriate for friends, partners or family to take responsibility for your needs in this way. Counselling, therefore, provides a very unique relationship that supports you in your process towards expanding the possibilities of who you are, and how you choose to live your life.
There are times that the challenges in our lives may lead to isolation, anxiety, depression, and other health problems. Through counselling, you can explore your alternatives, build on your strengths, and develop new insight and skills.
Counselling can help you to:
- Improve communications with significant others.
