Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. The counsellor helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness.
Building Trust Between Counsellor & Client
The therapeutic relationship between a counsellor and client is the feelings and attitudes that a client and therapist have towards one another, and the manner in which those feelings and attitudes are expressed. However, as important as trust is, building a therapeutic relationship is not something that can be built overnight. Creating rapport in a professional counseling relationship requires work, planning and dedication.

How Does Counselling Works?
Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your personal problems with a counsellor. The counsellor helps you to address your problems in a positive way by helping you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. For some people, just the process of telling their story to a counsellor, and being listened to, is helpful.
Counselling helps an individual to explore concerns and feelings in a safe and confidential setting with the help of a counsellor who is trained to listen attentively and without judgment. This, in turn, may help individuals to understand themselves and what they are experiencing better and may help them to develop more fulfilling relationships and a more satisfying life.
The overall aim is to provide an opportunity to work towards living more satisfyingly and resourcefully.
