The benefits of counselling can be experienced over time in subtle changes of thoughts, feelings and interactions and in some cases, one call can help to talk through any confidential concerns.
Telephone counselling can be just as affective over the phone in helping with peace of mind, talking through what you’re experiencing and building a therapeutic relationship with another person, especially when it’s difficult to express your thoughts and feelings with friends or family members. In some cases, it may somehow feel like a burden by sharing what troubles you with others, but counselling helps to re-experience what it’s like to be truly heard and have someone be present with you in the struggle.
With a qualified professional, your wellbeing is the primary focus. Where it maybe difficult to talk about certain topics, are ‘socially rejected’ emotions such as guilt, shame or anger, counselling provides a non-judgemental space to process what’s coming up for you and provide help in understanding things differently or in more depth.
