Thinking About Training to Become a Counsellor?

Counselling changes lives…...........

Counsellors and psychotherapists play a crucial role in improving the health and well-being of our society. They help people to talk about their feelings, think about their choices or their behaviour, and make positive changes in their lives.   People seek counselling to help them resolve emotional, psychological and relationship issues. They may be experiencing difficult and distressing events in their lives, such as bereavement, divorce, health issues or job concerns.

Or they may have more general underlying feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life. Some clients feel isolated and have no one else to talk to, but even people with supportive family and friends can find it difficult to talk to them about feeling anxious or depressed. Or they may just find it easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist.  

The therapist may assist the client in the following ways:

  • Think differently about past traumas and the likelihood of future traumas
  • Respond to negative stimulants differently
  • Calm obsessive or destructive thoughts
  • Recognize the difference between feelings and facts, and learn to avoid acting on impulse
  • Heal from trauma or abuse
  • Cope with grief or betrayal
  • Manage stress and insecurity more effectively
  • Deal with addiction issues such as gambling, alcohol, drugs or sex
  • Create plans to address common emotions, social situations or negative thought patterns
  • Identify triggers and work to create new, healthier responses to them
