It isn’t easy to describe exactly how counselling works – it is quite a complex process which works differently for different people at different times. However, one theme that seems to recur is the idea that counselling helps clients to look at their situation in a different way – to look at things from the outside rather than the inside.

Problems can prey on our minds, can be frightening and confusing – and this can make it difficult to think about our problems in a logical, practical way. We can find ourselves thinking round in circles, going over the same ground again and again, seemingly unable to control what is happening inside our heads. The expression “I can’t see the wood for the trees” is very apt.

Counselling can help to break these patterns by providing a different environment – an environment where we can start to view our problems from a different perspective – to understand why we feel so stuck and think about different approaches – to be able to look at the wood rather than the trees…
