Counsellors are trained to listen to people and give them advice about their problems. They treat identifiable, traumatic life events which have been causing distress. They work with clients who have issues such as anxiety, depression, phobias, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship problems, anger, habits such as facial tics, drug or alcohol abuse and sleep problems in order to help them move past these challenges.
Depending on the issues presented, the length of therapy can be from one session to several sessions. After the initial session, it would be agreed if a number of sessions should be planned. A review would be carried out after six sessions and it would be discussed whether to end therapy, have a break or continue with therapy. Sometimes it is helpful to have a break after a course of therapy and resume work again later, if there are other issues the client wishes to address.
