Counselling – Podcast

Posted on: Feb 8, 2013

Counselling in it’s most simple form involves the process of giving advice or guidance. To seek counsel is to seek the advice, guidance or help of someone by talking about what’s wrong and getting assistance in finding solutions to problems. The topics of counselling are as varied as there are topics, however, counselling is often categorized in the mental health field and when people refer to “what is counselling” they often are referring to mental health (psychological and emotional) counselling.

Counselling and Psychotherapy are often used interchangeably. Counselling is a form of therapy for emotional, psychological and/or relationship issues. Having said that, let’s take a look at the different reasons for counselling or therapy and then we will look at the different types of counselling. We will close with what one can expect during counselling.

Counselling To Help Deal With Issues

Posted on: Feb 1, 2013

People who attend for counselling are usually people who prefer to talk on a one-to-one basis with a professional counsellor. They often don’t like the idea of other types of therapies and they choose to deal with their problem by talking about it with a professional.

They want to share what they have on their mind, and they often want to get advice on the best solution to their issues. But the one thing that a therapist shouldn’t do is to give them advice. The counsellor needs to have the ability to repeat back what the client is saying to him and guide them solve their own problem. The good news is that everybody has it in them to solve their own issues, but often because they are in the middle fo their own problems they can’t see solutions, or can’t be objective enough to come up with a solution. This is why they seek help from another person. This is where counselling can help.

A lot of people are embarrassed or just can’t find the right words to express themselves to their family or friends about their issues. So going along to a professional counsellor who has no connections with them and is not going to judge them helps them to talk easier about their issues. The one thing that is always made clear to a client at the commencement of therapy that anything they say is strictly confidential.
