About Counselling

About Counselling

  • Counselling is offered by trained relationship professionals.
  • It's for people who want to make life changes.
  • The counsellor encourages personal responsibility - if you want to have a loving family and couple relationship, you need to be prepared to make the changes in your own behaviour first to bring this about.
  • A positive attitude can enhance possible changes in the relationship.
  • Change can only take place in small steps.
  • Counselling is not an instant cure, but takes some time.

Your Counsellor will offer you:

  • A safe, containing, confidential, non-judgmental, unbiased, empathic space where you will be heard.
  • Preferably seeing relevant members together so that all can work to resolve issues.
  • The focus will be on interaction in the present and exploring together how the past has an impact on the current situation.
  • The counsellor will facilitate positive change by focusing on strengths and resources.
  • Your counsellor will, together with you, clarify the goals of counselling and how this is approached.
  • Your counsellor will give you feedback about how you are doing.

Your Role:

To put your full energy into the counselling process by:

  • Participating fully, trusting and committing to the process by keeping appointments.
  • To be as honest and open as possible and prepared to listen to enable you to benefit fully from the process.
  • To value and respect yourself and others.
  • Doing homework carefully and continuing the process at home.
  • Asking questions and clarifying any matter that is unclear.
