There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding counselling. It is often viewed as a place that people go when they feel they are losing their mind or have suffered a life changing event such as death or trauma. Counselling is able to support in these situations, but is also about providing a safe space for a person to go when they have a lot going on in their minds/lives and need some time to make sense of it.
We all face tough situations every day and normally we manage just fine, however there are times when life can get too much and our mind and body tell us that they are struggling to understand and can’t quite process what has happened. This is where counselling can help, as you have a space, where you can sit uninterrupted to try to make sense of your world, and the therapist is there to provide support, not answers (although when a counsellor and a client work together, answers are often found).
CounsellingWorx is founded upon these key principles.
How do I find the right therapist for me?
Finding the right counsellor for you can feel overwhelming. There are many factors to consider such as cost or location, but there are also other aspects that may not be obvious such as confidentiality, qualifications and integrity, which can also impact upon a successful client/counsellor relationship. Being aware of what you are looking for in a counsellor can help you find the right counsellor for you.
