A counsellor is a trained and objective professional. Our Counsellors at Empowering Wellness Burleigh have been trained to offer a variety of assistance tools; most frequently talking-based styles of therapy.
Counselling is a process of talking about and working through things or situations that may be worrying you within a safe and always respectful environment. For some people, just the process of telling their story, and being listened to, is helpful.
There are many different types of talk-based therapy. With your therapist, Ron Bass, you will find together the technique that will best suit your needs. A counsellor may work in partnership with a medical doctor or other health professional at times to give comprehensive and integrated care.
Certainly, yes. Counselling provides confidential support. This means that everything you discuss with the counsellor is private, between you and the counsellor. The exception is when a counsellor has a duty of care to report something that threatens your wellbeing or the wellbeing of others. This legal requirement will be explained to you in your first counselling session.
There are many different types of counselling and approaches that counsellors may use to help.
Anyone who is struggling with a personal concern can seek counselling. No issue is too big or too small to ask for support. Common issues that people seek counselling for include:
- grief and loss
- communication and relationships challenges
- work and career worries
- life transitions such as the birth of a new baby, separation, divorce or the death of a family member or friend
- self-esteem difficulties
- exploring their gender identity and/or sexuality.
One of the biggest benefits of counselling is that it offers an open space opposite an impartial person to discuss what is going on in your life without fear of judgement. Just the knowledge that you have that place to go every week/fortnight can be enough to release the stress of holding in so many emotions.
Other benefits of counselling include a greater degree of self-awareness and understanding of yourself and others. This improves self-esteem, and becomes reflective in your personal relationships. Life feels more enjoyable and fun! You feel better about yourself and who you are.
Your first session will establish your connection with the professional. It is fundamental that you to feel comfortable. Our very professional and experienced Counsellor will offer a completely safe environment for you.
The first session may also help you to decide whether this counsellor is the right one for you. These are some questions you may ask yourself:
Do I feel comfortable?
Am I able to talk freely about deeply personal thoughts and emotions?
Do I feel they understand and respect me?
Has the counsellor discussed a plan with me about how we will manage my issues or concerns?
If you decide that the counsellor isn’t right for you, you are under no obligation to continue your treatment.
