What is counselling?

Counselling is a type of therapy provided by psychologists to help individuals, couples, families, or groups discuss and address the personal, social, or psychological challenges that we face every day. The goal is to provide expert insight and support in order to improve your mental wellbeing and health through discussion and talking therapies such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), couples counselling psychodynamic therapy. Whether you want to address a specific event or issue, you need psychological support in combination with manual therapy in order to manage a chronic condition or pain, or you would simply like to manage your mental health more effectively, our trained psychologists can help.

There are many reasons an individual may seek out counselling and psychological therapy. Some of the most common reasons are:

Grief and bereavement

One of the most common reasons an individual may require counselling is due to the loss of a loved one. This is a particularly sensitive subject for many people and one that some of us struggle to talk about. Losing a family member or close friend is devastating and can require counselling or therapy in order to manage the issues and emotions that come with loss. Grief and bereavement counselling focuses on providing support, understanding, and strategies for managing grief, helping you move forward in life. Bereavement and grief requires a sensitive approach that will differ depending on the individual, addressing different issues such as intense sadness, isolation, anger or the uncertainty surrounding a life transition such as the loss of a loved one.

Couples counselling

Also sometimes referred to as marriage counselling, couples counselling is a form of psychological therapy aimed at individuals involved in long-term relationships. The goal is to resolve conflict and encourage communication in order to address issues in a non-judgmental and unbiased environment. Couples counselling is an effective therapy for couples at any stage of a relationship, whether at the beginning dating stage, engaged to be married or in a long-term marriage or partnership. Typically, couples may seek out counselling for infidelity and trust issues, financial problems, issues with showing intimacy, difference in parenting opinions or to resolve and work through repeated conflicts and arguments that seemingly have no resolution.

Child and teenage counselling

Counselling and psychological therapies aimed at children and teens can be essential in helping them cope with emotional, behavioural, and psychological challenges. Therapies aimed specifically at children and adolescents will focus on creating a safe environment, encouraging the individual to open up and discuss issues and talking points facing children as they navigate growing up, school and social situations. Bullying, trauma or loss, academic pressure, anxiety and behavioural issues are all common discussion points for children and teens that they perhaps struggle to open up about at home, at school or with friends. Typically, therapy sessions aimed at children and teens will incorporate play therapy, art therapy, social skills training and other approaches that aim to raise confidence and comfort, creating a safe environment where a child feels safe discussing sensitive issues.

Drug and alcohol addiction

Addiction counselling is a vital tool for individuals battling substance or alcohol addiction, as well as other addictions such as smoking, gambling or excessive eating. Our counsellors will help equip you with various coping mechanisms in a supportive, non-judgemental environment. We can help you attain and maintain sobriety, improve your mental health and the way you think about your addictions, assisting you in building a better quality of life.
