Counseling is a conversational process instrumental in the development of skills that help clients effectively confront and cope with temporary uncertainties and conflicts. Counseling is to support an individual when s/he finds it difficult or painful to take decisions about his/her work-life or relationship.
The counselor’s working premise is that the client has the ability to resolve and overcome his/her difficulties with his/her own resources. The first stage in this process is to discuss and clarify the client’s current needs. Once this has been done, the counselor can then support the mobilization of the individual resources required to overcome any conflicts and uncertainties.
The counselor is a non-judgmental, objective, professional and experienced helper. His work is not to offer advice but, rather, to make the client feel comfortable in speaking and appreciated in revealing their feelings and emotions at a difficult time.
