Psychological Counselling

Psychological counselling is the utilisation of mental health, psychological and/or human development principles through systematic behavioural, affective and cognitive interventions that effectively address clients’ intimate concerns, problems or aspirations. Experienced counsellors apply a recognised set of communication skills, interpersonal qualities and personal experiences to help their clients to use their own existing problem–solving skills more effectively or to develop better or new coping strategies. In this process, counsellors provides an opportunity for the clients to openly describe their personal issues and feelings for themselves and to reach a conclusion of their desired decisions, goals and actions that is in accordance with their personal growth. Therefore, the predominant roll of a counsellor is one of facilitation rather than of advice-giving or coercion. This service is ideal for people who function well but they are in some degree of confusion or distress and who wish to discuss and resolve their private issues in a relationship with a more structured, disciplined and confidential relationship rather than friendship. Psychological counselling meets the needs of individuals, couples, families and groups that deal with their individual intra- and interpersonal issues regarding wellness, personal growth, family issues, career and pathological concerns.
