What can participants achieve with counselling and therapy?

Counselling is a process. It supports individuals in many ways.
It can address personal issues, help participants gain greater control over their life, and enhance their emotional wellbeing.

Counselling and therapy can be in a one-on-one or group setting, depending on the individual’s specific needs. Counselling services are geared towards developing skills to better manage crises and challenges that arise in daily life. It is not only effective in managing severe mental health problems but also helpful in building self-awareness, resilience, and coping strategies.

During counselling sessions, participants work towards achieving their desired outcomes by exploring past experiences and identifying how they have contributed to current behaviours and thought patterns. This enables them to develop effective strategies for dealing with external factors and moving forward towards their desired goals.

Some of the positive outcomes for participants include:

Develop and improve their relationship with family, friends, school or work
Find direction in life; counselling can help participants achieve their goals whatever they might be
Learn new skills
Improve their mental health and wellbeing
Help solve challenges and difficult situations
