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.

Usually, the first session, is about getting to know each other and being comfortable with each other. The information you give to the counsellor will help the counsellor to better help you.

In subsequent sessions, coping skills will be introduced and engaging clients in problem-solving. The client and counsellor will be working together.

All sessions are confidential unless harm to self or others is observed by the counsellor.

Depending on what degree and speciality they get, psychotherapists can be psychiatrists, psychologists, counsellors, or social workers. They can work with individuals, couples, groups, or families.
