Counselling

What is counseling?

Counseling is the means by which one person helps another through purposeful conversation

Counseling is a method of identifying practical solution to an identified problem

Counselling is about helping people who want to change some aspects of their thoughts, feelings or behaviour to enhance their life, or simply to explore and/or clarify their thoughts or feelings.

In counselling, you are talking to a counsellor, i.e. someone who is properly trained and has regular professional supervision. Usually, you would have an appointment to see a counsellor for a specific length of time (usually fifty minutes or an hour) at a regular time every week.

No-one can be “sent” for counselling, and counselling can’t be ‘done to you’. A person makes a positive choice to see a counsellor and the process demands commitment in terms of time, hard work and finance.

The Counselling Process

In general, a counsellor will listen to you without butting-in or imposing their own values and beliefs on you. They will give you the space to explore your thoughts, feelings, or behaviour, whatever they are. People can find it helpful just to have their concerns taken seriously.

The counsellor may also employ a variety of techniques to help you understand your feelings. For instance, the counsellor may ask questions designed to reflect back to you your thought processes and to help you make sense of your feelings. The way we think has a great deal to do with how we feel and how we experience things. You might explore and implement changes in the way you do things, and that then can go on to enhance your life or your relationship.

Why see a counsellor?

It’s normal for people to struggle with significant issues from time to time. Issues can be triggered by a specific life event such as a relationship difficulty, job-loss, an illness or a bereavement. Alternatively, we may be struggling with ongoing issues such as low self-esteem, lack of confidence, anxiety or depression. For others there is no obvious specific problem, but their life lacks direction or purpose.

What are the advantages for seeing a counsellor?

There are several advantages to talking to a counsellor:
⦁ You won’t have to worry about upsetting them
⦁ They aren’t going to judge you
⦁ They will make sure that you are safe by setting appropriate boundaries such as confidentiality, setting clear goals, sharing their decisions about the direction of the counselling
⦁ They will not say what they think you want to hear
⦁ You can make fundamental and far-reaching changes to your life     We at Young Achievers offer various types of counseling. A few of them are:

⦁ If you want to visit us for any type of counseling kindly take an appointment and come for consultation. As with a standard mental health counseling situation, the counselor will usually begin with an intake, exploring what brings the teen into the counseling situation, what they have been struggling with, and what their therapy goals and concerns are. The counselor may also wish to meet with the parents separately to learn their impressions of the situation, although the goal of the counseling is to help the child, not the parents. Once the goals are established, the counselor will work with the teen to learn new coping mechanisms and explore the roots of the issues at hand, so that ultimately the teen will be happier and better able to function during these difficult years.
