One of the better definitions of counselling (the UN) is, "counselling is a method of relating & responding to other people with the aim of providing them with opportunities to explore, to clarify & work towards living in a more satisfactory & resourceful way."
According to the BAC, counselling is for :
addressing & resolving issues, decision-making, to cope with crises,
development of personal insight, working through emotions of inner conflict or
bettering one's relationships.
facilitating client growth in ways that respect client values, resources & ability to make their own decisions.
helping clients forge a direction : taking responsibility for choices.
there's always a way through things if you work hard enough & look close.
It all depends on your level of determination
What is counselling?
Counselling or Psychotherapy are worth pursuing; they are somewhat different.
Counselling tends to be educational, situational, involve problem-solving, deals with shallower issues than psychotherapy, focuses on the present & lasts for less time.
Psychotherapy is often about personality issues, looking at unconscious aspects of people, deals with deeper issues, & considers the past.
This approach is longer, overall, in terms of how many counselling sessions might be needed.
It largely depends on what your needs as the client are.
Deeper issues explored may include repressed anger, resentment, shame, fear or guilt, which tend to 'leak out' into our relationships even when we are trying to do a good job of putting our best foot forward!
Psychotherapy is therapy of the 'psyche', which might be thought of as your mind, emotions, motivations & behaviour.
