Talking to a stranger is often easier than talking to a judged one, as if you feel uncomfortable or say the wrong thing then you don’t have to see them ever again. They are less likely to judge you as they can see the overall picture and get to know you and your situation based on what you tell them.
A counsellor can often be understanding and help you to talk through your problems. It will feel like a weight has been lifted off your chest, so you should feel a lot better about everything.
There are a number of different reasons that people go for guidance and counselling sessions. This may be because of an illness and learning to deal with it, or that of another family member or close friend.
They may also be able to help in cases of depression or unhappiness. Self-confidence issues are also common, and the counsellor can help to give you advice to make you feel better about yourself and put some things into practise.
There are many counsellors around the world, and some of these can be free of charge if you go through your doctor. Of course, this depends on what country you are from, but generally within the UK it doesn’t cost a thing unless you go private.
