Discuss your concerns in a safe and confidential environment

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a form of therapy that involves an individual talking about and working through their personal problems with a Psychologist or Counsellor in a safe and confidential environment.

Counselling doesn’t involve the Psychologist or Counsellor making a judgement on what is right or wrong, or telling the client what to do. Instead, the Psychologist/Counsellor will help the individual address their problems and concerns in a positive way, clarify the issue and develop and implement strategies to increase self-awareness and achieve personal well-being.

What can counselling help with?

Anyone who is dealing with a challenging situation or personal concern can seek counselling. Some common areas that people seek counselling for include:

  • Trauma-related issues
  • Depression, anxiety, and stress
  • Grief, loss and bereavement
  • Emotional distress/adjustment
  • Parenting and family issues
  • Relationships issues
  • Lifestyle, health, and personal growth
  • Fertility and pregnancy-related concerns.

How to get the most from the counselling process.

To get the most from counselling services, individuals should aim for regular and consistent appointments. Counselling is not a quick fix and the process requires a strong relationship between the client and the psychologist/counsellor and effort on the part of the client.

Counselling is more effective if the client has some clear goals they would like to achieve through the counselling sessions. Clients should also be willing to do some working both during and between their counselling sessions. Having realistic and positive expectations for counselling will play a critical role in the progress the individual will make within the counselling relationship; unrealistic and negative expectations may hinder meeting their goals.
