Many people have a misconception about counselling. They think that counselling is only for people who are in trouble. School children view counselling as being meant only for ‘bad’ or ‘naughty’ students.
The late Anthony Yeo (1993), in his book Counselling: A Problem-Solving Approach, gave this definition.
“Counselling is an activity that cannot be done mechanically. It is a human encounter that involves people helping people in a relationship established for this purpose. This relationship is facilitated by the counsellor with skilfully responses to engage the client in problem-solving.”
In short, counselling is helping people to help themselves. It is about empowerment. Instead of rewriting a new life story for you, we help you to write your own life story… a better one.
