What is counselling?
Through dialogue with a counsellor, you will be able to express your feelings and thoughts so that you can develop a functional perspective toward yourself, others and the world around you. The counsellor also helps you develop coping strategies to address your issues.
By expressing yourself and answering the counsellor's questions you can reveal an inner self, which you haven't been aware of. This process can leave you feeling clearer and better.
