Why do people come to counselling?

People come to counselling for many reasons. Some people come to avert a crisis, while others may be in the middle of one. Some people may be unhappy and know why and know what they need to change, while others may want to seek the cause of their unhappiness.

Some people find it hard to talk to those that are closest to them, or they fear that they won’t be listened to properly by their family and friends. A counsellor can provide such people with time and space to help them make important decisions in their lives.

Sometimes people come to counselling with one particular issue and discover along the way that there are other issues that need to be resolved.

The central goal in counselling is to bring about a positive change in a person’s feelings, behaviour and thinking.
