Counselling Ashford Kent can help you achieve your goals and make you smile again ☺

Counselling is an umbrella term for talking therapies; in which you are provided with a safe and supportive environment in order to explore any problems that might be causing you confusion, pain or discomfort. The aim of counselling is to help you explore the reasons behind your emotional pain, or the feeling of being ‘stuck’ and help you move forward with your life in a positive way.

The role of the counsellor is to enable you to explore your feelings through talking freely and openly. You might find it difficult or embarrassing talking to friends or family about your concerns and often they are likely to be emotionally involved and have opinions and biases. However, by talking to a trained professional, it can help you look at your problems from a different, un-biased, non-judgemental and balanced perspective.

Counselling can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views. They won't usually give advice, but will help you find your own insights into and understanding of your problems and strategies for moving forward.

It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.

In most cases, it takes a number of sessions before the counselling starts to make a difference, and a regular commitment is required to make the best use of the therapy.
