I practice counselling as a brief form of problem-solving, goal oriented and solution focused work which may last anywhere from 3 sessions to 16 sessions, or when the client’s goals have been achieved.
Counselling can beneficial for a variety of concerns, such as:
- Mild depression and low self-esteem.
- Stress management.
- Relationship challenges.
- Enhancing communication.
- Conflict resolution.
- Clarifying decision making.
- Exploring life-style options.
Often many concerns that clients bring to counselling cannot be resolved to the client’s satisfaction within a brief counselling context. In such situations the work is engaged within a longer context working with a psychotherapeutic frame.
HERE is a link to a brief article I wrote about the difference between brief counselling and psychotherapy.
