We all experience challenging situations in life that are difficult to cope with. Your previous solutions do not work anymore and you have not found new ones yet. The purpose of counselling is to help you get past these barriers.
It is worth asking for help if you have the following problems:
Psychological counselling may take place individually or in groups, depending on the approach the problem requires.
During individual psychological counselling, you have the possibility to work on your personal problems face to face with full discretion. The sessions are held once a week and they are 50 minutes long per occasion. On the first sessions, we assess the problems and set the goal(s) together so we can agree how and for how long the counselling process will take. If me and the client also think that counselling would not be the best option to solve the problems then the client may be directed to another specialist.
Group psychological counselling is usually organized around a particular topic where the members have similar goals (e.g. improving self-knowledge and other social skills). Counselling is organized in small groups and the number of the participants is between 8 and 15. The group is led by two well-trained counsellors.
This can depend on the type of the problem or the individual preferences. Individual counselling is recommended if you prefer discussing a problem in greater depth (e.g. coping with loss). Group counselling can be useful if you think that your partners’ feedback and observing their behaviours can help you solve your problems and move you forward (e.g. improving assertiveness). Furthermore, it is worth considering if you prefer working face to face or in a group situation.
