For which issues can I use Counseling?
Counselling is intended to help you cope with the normal everyday challenges of living, work, relationships etc. A lot of people use counseling when they feel overwhelmed with a problem or find that a particular problem seems to persist. There are no hard and fast rules. Some people may not even have a problem but would like to improve or better themselves.
Who is a Counsellor?

How Counselling Helps
People often hesitate to use counselling, wondering if it will really be helpful. How can someone who does not know me understand what I am going through? Does counselling really help? After all, the counsellor can't change my circumstances. Will a counsellor judge me and point out all that is wrong with me? I would feel uncomfortable talking/writing to a stranger.
