In counselling clients are helped to overcome current issues which might be preventing them from enjoying life fully or engaging with it in a meaningful way. Counselling also helps individuals to explore the feelings and emotions that are often related to their experiences. This allows clients to reflect on what is happening to them and consider alternative ways of engaging with life.
There are various models of counselling, each with its own theoretical basis. At mindline the counselling model is integrative, which means that various approaches are integrated to best suit the very individual and unique needs which we belief all our clients have. Person Centred counselling is at the core of the mindline approach. Choice theory/reality therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy are integrated with the person centred approach to provide a robust counselling experience.
Counselling is undertaken in a confidential setting and clients are offered the time, empathy and respect they need to express their feelings and come to understand themselves and their world from different perspectives. The aim is to enable clients to cope more effectively with life's challenges and to make positive changes in their life where necessary.
The counselling process does not involve giving advice but instead helps clients to make their own choices within an agreed counselling framework. Counselling can help clients find better ways of self expression and more beneficial coping strategies. The counselling relationship is a safe and supportive space for learning how to navigate times of turbulence and change. At mindline, counselling is a deeply personal & private experience.
