Counselling in Eastbourne
Sometimes we all need a little bit of help. Counselling can provide a lot of help, but the trouble is that many people don’t quite understand how counselling can help.
The primary role that a counsellor will fulfill is one of a listener. By providing a detached, unbiased person to talk to, counsellors help you identify the problem areas in your life, and can take you a long way towards working out, on your own term, what you should do next.
Different counsellors adopt different techniques, ranging from counsellors who will offer feedback and suggestions as to how you can resolve you problems, to counsellors who prefer to let you talk out the issues yourself and reach your own conclusions.
It’s a flexible format, and the rules about what you can discuss are never set in stone. Feel free to talk about difficulties in your relationship, family or career, addiction, or even less well defined issues such as a lack of confidence or feelings of isolation and depression.
The way you talk about these subjects is your decision. What the counsellor provides is space to listen to yourself talk about these topics without fear of being criticised or judged. It’s a safe space for discussion any problems you have at the moment.
