What Is Counseling

Counselling is a common talking therapy that is used to help people deal with lots of different life problems. However, like the term 'therapy' counselling is a term that is often also used interchangeably for talking therapies in general.

Counsellors who work with individuals will usually have had specific training to do so. Whilst couples counsellors will have had training in working with couples and their particular issues, and family counsellors with families and understanding the family dynamic. Some counsellors may also have completed more than one training and are therefore qualified to work with more than one type of client group.

The length of the piece of counselling work undertaken will depend on the type of issue/s a client is looking to work on or address, and their individual circumstances.
