Counselling refers to the situation where a counsellor and a client meet in order to sort out stressful or emotional problems faced by the client. The main goal of counselling is to enable the clients to talk more freely on the issues that trouble them and to instill a positive change and perspective in them. The main foundation of counselling is trust. The counsellors will usually assure you of their policy on confidentiality to win your trust prior to the counselling session. However, they are bound by law to breach that policy if they fear a risk to life.

Counselling is an effective way to help people express themselves more openly and to sort their issues. People usually tend to hesitate to when they are required to confide or express to people they know or interact daily with. However, when it comes to counselling, they get more comfortable expressing themselves as counsellors are professionals and their personal information are safe with them. Though the importance of counselling might not have been recognised earlier, more and more people have stated to realise it and are seeking out to counsellors for help. Though counselling can be done to one’s family or loves ones, professional counselling needs extensive knowledge and training.

You will be taught on how to develop self-understanding and personal qualities. Then you will understand how to identify and access support and to demonstrate counselling skills.
