The Benefits of Counselling

Counselling is widely available today, and, more than ever, people are taking it up to address the problems they face.

But, you may wonder, "Will it help me?" Well, now may be the time to find out. It is easier than ever to find a good counsellor in your local area and to take advantage of the benefits available.

Some of the benefits of counselling include:

  1. A safe and confidential place to share your concerns and receive professional feedback

  2. A chance to learn more about yourself and how your past, present, and future perspective fits together

  3. A chance to learn more about the tools available to help cope with your current problems, and move forward with the support of a counsellor.

What happens in a Counselling session?

A counselling session is a lot like a private appointment with any other professional. There are questions to answer, opportunities to express your concerns, and a time for determining the best way forward.

The main difference in counselling from other professional input is that the focus is on you, as a whole person, in addition to the focus being upon the specific issue you want addressed. A Counsellor can help you to become more self-aware and to understand better how you got to the place you are currently, and then together you will work to set goals and develop a strategy for personal growth and positive change.

How do I find a Counsellor?

There are many very good qualified Counsellors in the Leamington Spa, Warwickshire area, and there are some excellent national resources where you can search for counsellors in your area.

These include: The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP): http://www.itsgoodtotalk.org.uk/ ; and the Counselling Directory: http://www.counselling-directory.org.uk/
