How Counselling Works

During a counselling  session, you are encouraged to talk  about your feeling and experiences. Talking to friends and family is helpful but you may find it difficult to open up fully about your issues. The reason behind this is that you may find that they may be judgemental or you may be worried about their emotions. Talking to a professional counsellor can mean that you do not have to deal with these issues. Talking about your feelings and issues can help you to explore and identify issues that are causing problems and also it can help you to set goals to to deal with those issues. After expressing your feelings and talking about your issues, you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your therapist. (NHS)
