What is Counselling Therapy?
A professional therapeutic relationship
Counselling is a professional therapeutic relationship. It is a private, safe space for people to seek help from a professional trained in psychological care. A counselling therapist helps you find your best way to resolve the negative circumstances you are in.
Gaining self awareness is hard
Counselling therapy is not easy. It is hard to open up about personal problems. Looking into our own thoughts, feelings, behaviours and beliefs about life is an uncomfortable process. In many ways this is the process of counselling. This is how we become self aware. Self awareness helps us understand why we react as we do. Self awareness is essential but counselling work needs to move beyond that and help the client initiate their own change.
Change is a challenge
Implementing changes in how we think, feel and behave is one of life’s greatest challenges. Counselling therapy can help the client initiate their own change. This happens by encouraging ongoing self examination and providing supportive structured support.
Counselling therapy helps you to face the challenge of personal change regardless of past or present failures. Counselling enables you to be a more complete you.
For many, becoming that more complete you is not just a matter of managing your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Ultimately counselling helps you to know what you can hope for, build towards, and believe in for your future.
At Prevail we endeavour to walk that road with you.
