COUNSELLING at Health In The Bay.
What is counselling?
Counselling is based on a therapeutic relationship which promotes the client to explore the way they think, how they feel, how they act and how they relate. This leads to an increased self-awareness, as well as an increased awareness of how to move through their difficulties and challenges, and feel resolved and clear within themselves.
The aim of counselling is to foster wellbeing through personal growth, assisting clients to resolve crises and life problems through personal change, developing personal meaning and healing following loss and grief.
