What Counseling is:

Counseling is about helping you understand yourself and your situation and make some changes if you feel ready to do so.

Counseling takes place because you want it yourself or someone suggests that you need it. However, counseling works better when you take it on your own.

Counseling takes place when you decide and number of sessions depends upon the complexity of your problem.

Counseling helps at three levels: it helps you do better than you are doing now, it helps you prevent yourself from possible psychological hazards, and it helps solve problems if there are any. Hence, every individual can take counseling.

Meeting with a counselor gives you an opportunity to explore the problems or concerns in some depth in safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment. By listening closely, counselor begins to help you see the issues more clearly and together you can make up new and different choices about how to deal with the things in future.

In each session, counseling helps you see yourself, your future and the world more realistically on the basis of different psychological perspectives but without passing any suggestions and advices.

Each session of counseling gives you an opportunity to talk about bottled up feelings and express and accept these feelings without being overwhelmed by them.
