Why not just talk to a friend? This can help enormously but sometimes you might feel you dont want to do that: perhaps you feel your friends have heard it all before and you feel you don't want to burden them or maybe you can't really say what you want to say because they might be hurt or confused or frustrated or they might judge you in some way. It can also be the case that friends can find it difficult to be objective quite simply because they are your friends.
The relationship you have with your counsellor is a professional relationship with the sole purpose of focusing on you and your thoughts and feelings about your situation so there is no need to filter what you say. This has the benefit of being able to simply tell it how it is without having to worry about what the other person might think.
In your counselling sessions with me, I will use a wide range of active listening, questioning and feedback techniques to assist you to clarify, explore and increase your awareness and choice in relation to whatever issue(s) you wish to improve or resolve. My role as your counsellor is to help you to find workable approaches and solutions to your issues and improve your quality of life.
