Why Do I Need Counselling

From time immemorial, mankind has always survived on the need of an advisor. Battles were won, lands were conquered and journeys were made; however always with the guide and blessings of an advisor.

Kings had their viziers, generals, dukes and in the present era, private secretaries to provide them with that much needed direction. Princes had their regent. Prime Ministers have their cabinet and presidents have their chief of staff. Whilst the common folk always had an elder or friend to turn to.

Two heads are better than one

The need for an advisor arises from the simple fact that when you are in the eye of the storm, you may find it difficult to navigate out of it on your own without risking clashing into the storm itself. Working with someone not directly affected by the same problems, provides you the opportunity to identify where you are and where you should be going. Richard Branson succiinctly phrases it as "Two heads are better than one and by sourcing ideas from each other, you have a better chance of coming up with a strategy that will allow your business to overcome a setback or challenge."

Have you ever felt the need to get something off your chest? Have you ever felt the need to be heard? Or have you ever just simply needed someone to assure you that you were heading on the right path?

Those are indeed the roles an advisor plays in your life. Of course, you could simply find a friend to fulfill that need. However, the difference between a friend and counsellor lies in the matter of confidentiality.

Your secrets are safe with a counsellor

Counsellors are professionally and legally bound to keep your discussions confidential. Therefore, you can be assured that any information you disclose will always remain classified. Furthermore, counsellors have an expertise to manage issues you may be facing. They have the knowledge and techniques to correctly navigate the important decisions in your life.
