Humanistic and Integrative Counselling is a relationship in which the counsellor facilitates an environment for the client to feel empowered, develop their own resilience, and generally feel more confident.
Counselling can be particularly helpful for processing painful feelings and events, and to work towards positive change in your life. It can be a relief to talk to a professional who is separate from the rest of your life, and to put aside a time each week in which you can focus on yourself and your own needs. You can then gain some insights into where you are in your life, who you are or who you want to be, and which direction to go in.
Sometimes one of the most challenging steps is to seek help in the first place. Once you have started the therapy process, it becomes easier to explore difficult thoughts and feelings in a productive way. Talking things through can help your mind feel less cluttered, and makes decision-making more straightforward.
