Useful Resources » Counselling

Counselling has been described as the art of listening constructively.

Most counsellors do not aim to influence their clients in a particular direction, but to help them explore the options open to them.

Counselling provides an opportunity for a client to work towards living a more satisfying and resourceful way.

Counselling can help a wide range of problems including:

  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Relationship issues

Before a counselling session begins the counsellor should clarify with the client:

  • The basis on which counselling is to be given
  • The method
  • Duration
  • Fees

All that takes place between the counsellor and client is treated with respect, discretion and in confidence.

Many counsellors are members of the British Association for Counselling. The association aims to:

  • Promote the understanding and awareness of counselling throughout society
  • Increase the availability of trained and supervised counsellors
  • Maintain and raise standards of training and practice
  • Provide support for counsellors and those using counsellor skills
  • Provide opportunities for their continual professional development
  • Respond to requests for information and advice on matters related to counselling
  • Represent counselling at national and international levels
