Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore any current or past difficulties in your life which may be preventing you from moving on in the way you would want to.
The counsellor will be able to listen carefully in a non-judgemental way and can help give clarity, which will help bring about change, or reduce confusion. Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore aspects of your life and accompanying feelings without fear of being judged.
Sometimes bottled-up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief, shame and embarrassment can become very intense.
A counsellor is trained to listen to you and accept your feelings. Many people who come for counselling gain a renewed self-respect and a sense of being valued which in turn helps them to feel accepted and respected as a person in their own right.
Youth Counselling Service
The BRO funded Open Door Youth Counselling Project works with young people in the 11-18 age group, living in the Inner Neighbourhood Renewal Area of East Belfast.
Surprisingly, it is easier to talk to someone you don’t know – someone who is experienced and trained in listening.
