So to summarise....
Counselling is the client and the therapist coming together to find a way forward
Sessions last an hour, family counselling will be longer.
The number of sessions can be as many or as few as required, and although continuity is important we can spread them out if that’s more convenient.
Counselling can help by simply being able to talk freely in a safe environment; it is often called 'The Talking cure'.
Many people internalise their problems, often not knowing where to turn, then often feeling relief on being able to share with another.
