What is Counselling?

Counselling is a process that will take you on a journey of self-discovery. Your counsellor will accompany you on your journey and maintain a safe environment to enable you to free yourself to explore. This journey has no set distance; you can travel as little or as much as you feel comfortable to do, at the speed that you wish to travel. The number of sessions that you have will be tailored to you and what you are trying to achieve.

Counselling has no limits to the subjects that can be explored; if it is something that you wish to talk about and is important to you, then it’s important to your counsellor.

Your counsellor will not judge you for what you say, or your actions, they will try and help you work through your thoughts and feelings.

CHOICES value a person for their individuality and aid in the process of each person entering into the counselling relationship to achieve autonomy to enable them to live a more satisfying life.
