Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Counselling is a procedure through which people in distress speaks to qualified professionals discussing about their problems and issues, and get help or advise from the professional. The professional conducts the session empathically, maintaining the ethical code of conduct, ensuring privacy and confidentiality. The person in distress gets a release by speaking about the problems to someone who is ready to hear him/her out, and in turn the advice or guidance provided by the professional, or therapeutic interventions help the person bring positive changes in his/her life.
Any kinds of problems that cause a distress in the person’s life or mental health, issues about career, or interpersonal relationships, issues about children, or even issues about disturbing thought patterns or behavior can be discussed.
