Does counselling work?

There has long been “a great deal of discussion and debate about the effectiveness of counseling and psychotherapy. The vast majority of the research when examined as a whole seems to indicate very positive outcomes for counseling. Self-reported outcomes, follow-up studies, and efficacy studies all show a generalized trend that indicates a significant success rate for counseling and psychotherapy.”

Is counselling for me?

Life may not always be easy, but it doesn’t have to be hard! People seek counseling for a variety of issues. Regardless of the symptom, the underlying reason is often the same; they simply want to feel better, to have more peace, joy, and happiness in their life. If you are feeling dissatisfied with life, stressed to the max, overwhelmed, going through a significant life transition, experiencing anger, anxiety or sadness more often than you’d like, or are feeling stuck in a rut professionally or personally, counseling may be for you. Counselling provides an opportunity to explore avenues not previously considered. You can collaborate with an objective supporter, and in doing so, gain a fresh perspective and gain momentum toward achieving goals YOU choose.
