So what is counselling? It is, quite simply, a talking therapy. Similarly sometimes counselling is used to refer to talking therapies in general. Likewise it is a type of therapy in its own right.
Counselling in North Tyneside is provided by a trained counsellor who listens and helps you understand your feelings and thoughts. They help you find ways to deal with stressful life experiences and emotional issues and, what is equally important, is that your counsellor helps to bring objective clarity to situations or issues you are facing.
