Have you ever wondered what counselling does?
In our fast-paced society, many people are under a lot of stress, whether they are struggling as a student or trying to cope with an overwhelming workload. This leaves little time for them to spend with their loved ones which can lead to misunderstandings and arguments. These are very common problems that everyone faces, but we are not equipped with the skills to help those who are suffering from these issues.
Counselling helps by giving people the time and opportunity to be heard, without any judgement. It is the art of using talk therapy to guide them towards a better understanding of their issues and promotes positive change.
Come learn how to improve your communication abilities and understand how you can help your friends, loved ones and colleagues.
