Counselling is the process that occurs when a client and counsellor meet together in order to explore difficulties that the client is experiencing.  This may include you, your family, your relationships and provides the space to explore stressful or emotional issues for the client.  Counselling is the act of helping the client to see things more clearly, possibly from a different view-point. This can enable the client to focus on emotions, perceptions and behaviours, with a goal of facilitating positive change.  Counselling is a relationship of trust.  Confidentiality is paramount to successful counselling.  Professional counsellors will usually explain their policy on confidentiality, they may, however, be required by law to disclose information if they believe that there is a risk to life.
