What Is Counselling?

Counselling is the process of talking about and working through your personal problems or emotional wellness issues with an appropriately trained and qualified professional.

Thinking of Becoming a Counsellor?

Counsellors help people to deal with their feelings and responses, and decide on actions they can take to solve problems and create change in their lives.

Find out what being a counsellor involves and how to start a career in counselling.

How Do I Choose a Counsellor?

Have a chat asking about time, place and cost. Let the counsellor know what you want to get out of counselling and check that they can provide this. You may also want to ask about the counsellor's qualifications, their professional membership and the way they work. You should get a sense of whether you'd be comfortable talking to this person.
