Counsellors Role

A counsellor will;

 

  • Provide you with a safe, secure and confidential counselling environment
  • Agree a contract with you, the client, which includes dates, times, issues you want to discuss, explore and work through
  • Be non-judgemental, genuine, respectful, and encourage you to talk openly and honestly
  • Listen to you, using full acceptance and empathy, which supports and helps you explore, understand and deal with your feelings, difficulties and situations more effectively. (whether practically or emotionally)
  • Assist you in evaluating your life, and helping you to develop strategies which help you either accept or, change your situation
  • Promote your ‘Well-Being’ and your independence, in the shortest possible time frame
  • Work within the ethical guidelines of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists Ethical Framework
