Counselling offers people the chance to talk about their feelings and foster any changes they may wish to make in their life; there is no longer a stigma attached to seeking advice and support on a wide range of issues and counsellors are in popular demand. As a counsellor, you will give people time, attention and a safe, confidential environment to help them explore their feelings. You will gain an understanding of a range of counselling skills and have the opportunity to examine some of the various schools of thought/theoretical models associated with them.
