Counselling is a form of talking therapy. There are many modalities or theories within which counsellors practice and the therapy within which your chosen counsellor practices will be important to the way you work together. Research proves that the most important part of a client / counsellor relationship is trust and the building of a good bond where the client can explore issues that they may have never shared with anyone before.
When looking for a counsellor you should always look for a person with whom you feel comfortable to work with. You should also look for someone who adheres to a code of conduct or professional guidelines such as the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Ethical Framework for Good Practice. Counselling isn’t always about talking about problems from the past, it’s about clarifying and reorganising old issues into a format that can assist you to move forward. There are times when a person may need support by talking through an issue, or times when a person may simply need strategies to help them function better in the Here and Now. These strategies can be varied and together we will find a way to work things out.
