Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.
Sometimes it can be easier for people to talk to a stranger, rather than family members or friends, and that’s where counselling comes in! Any problems, big or small, can be discussed with our trusted TransFriendly counsellors.
Some people come to therapy with a specific issue or concern, and brief sessions to help find a solution may be perfect. Often, that can last six to eight sessions. Some people come to therapy to explore issues that run a little deeper, and may want to engage in therapy for several months or even years.
It’s important to discuss all of your aims and needs with your trusted TransFriendly counsellor, so they can arrange the best help for you.
The cost of private counselling can vary depending on where you live, with a session costing anywhere from £10 and up. Many of our trusted businesses will be able to provide you with price lists on their page.
Counselling focuses on specific issues and is designed to help a person address a particular problem, such as addiction or stress management. It focuses more on the “here and now” and provides you with slightly faster solutions to current problems.
It’s considered less probing and shorter term than therapy, as it’s generally less necessary to delve deeply into your past, unless the information is relevant to your current problems.
Group counselling is very similar to a normal counselling session, you are just surrounded by like-minded people instead of one-on-one with you counsellor.
Some people find this style of counselling very beneficial, as you’ll all be encouraged to share your experiences and work on understanding yourself better whilst not feeling so alone.
