Because Happiness Matters
Counselling is a contracted, confidential, helping relationship. I listen carefully, remain objective, and help you improve your situation by letting you think out loud, over time, in a safe and non-judgmental environment. My main focus in counselling is to support you to explore your own thoughts and feelings, and help you to find those things that have meaning for you and that motivate you.
The ultimate goal of counselling is to clarify and address the issues which made you seek counselling in the first place. It's not about me giving you advice or getting you to do things that you don't want to do. It's about you to figure out how you would like to move forward, the way you want to do. If you want to be generally happier, you might be interested in reading the section on Happiness.
The general approach to counselling I prefer to use is a person-centered, humanistic approach. On average, using this approach tends to make a large amount of change over long periods of time. Post-therapy gains are usually stable, and people who participate in humanistic therapies generally show substantially more change over time. After the sessions conclude, you're more likely to be able to keep the changes you've made, as well as show continued growth in your life independently, over time.
