The majority of us cope well enough with day to day problems which arise in our lives. Sometimes, however we meet a situation or have experiences that can stretch our coping resources, reduce our mood, increase our stress or anxiety or affect our behaviour. Sometimes to the extent where we might find it difficult to seek the usual support of a friend or family member.
According to Tim Bond (2012) an expert in Counselling ethics; "Counselling is a profession where relating and responding to others has the aim of providing them with opportunities to explore, clarify and work towards living in a more personally satisfying and resourceful way."
Counselling may be helpful for the following:
- relationship and family problems
- major life changes
- eating disorders
Counselling can be helpful for many difficulties where specific events in your life have affected you. It may also be that there has been no crisis but you have developed some anxiety or sadness about a situation and you would find it helpful to have one or two counselling sessions to help you to resolve this or to deal with it differently.
