What is Counselling?

Counselling is a therapeutic relationship between a qualified counsellor and the client. It is both professional and intentional. In difficult circumstances, family members and friends are unable to provide an objective point of view. Counselling offers this objective perspective, thus enabling the client to gain insights and strategies to assist in managing their particular situation. 

Counselling usually takes place on a one-to-one basis:
  • A counsellor and client will normally sit with one another for an hour to discuss any relevant issues which are presented by the client.
  • The counselling process involves a ‘getting to know you’ period just like any new relationship.
  • The client is able to choose a counsellor and counselling style which is best suited to their particular situation.
  • In order to make the counselling process as comfortable as possible, you may request either a male or female counsellor.
  • The counsellor and client play an equal role in the counselling process. There is no ‘expert’ in a counselling relationship.
  • The counsellor’s intention is to make the counselling process both safe and supportive.

How Can We Help?

Counselling is not giving advice.  Rather, counselling is a process in which regular discussions and sharing of thoughts, fears or feelings with a trained counsellor can help you to understand and resolve what is troubling you – whether it comes from circumstances, other people or yourself.  It can therefore assist you to make choices, decisions or changes which could enable you to lead your life more fully.

At Making the Difference Brisbane, the basis of all counselling is objective and supportive listening and respect for the client as an individual.  Processing things previously put aside by the pressures of everyday life can be difficult, but the opportunity to explore your feelings in a private, confidential and non-judgmental atmosphere can be a relief in itself.  Counselling provides an opportunity to gain new perspectives and can encourage a greater dimension of wellbeing.
