People come to counselling for many different reasons and they can benefit from counselling in many different ways. It is not unusual for people to be unsure of why they feel the way they do, or how they may want to make the best use of counselling.
There does not have to be a crisis before choosing to have counselling. It may be underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with life in general, or you may be seeking more balance in your life.
Through talking with a counsellor, people may increase their self-awareness bringing some understanding or discovering concerns. For example, someone experiencing depression may have had a loss in their lives or may have been bullied or abused in some way.
