Interactive Counselling’s goal is to break the stigma that goes along with counselling.
Interactive Counselling doesn’t believe that one mold fits all, so we offer a variety of counselling options to be as versatile as possible so you can pick what fits you best, such as:
During your counselling sessions, you'll be encouraged to express your feelings and emotions. By discussing your concerns with you, your counsellor can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes, as well as identifying ways of finding your own solutions to problems.
It can be a great relief to share your worries and fears with someone who acknowledges your feelings and is able to help you reach a positive solution.
A particular issue probably led you to seek counseling. Your counsellor has to understand your surface problem(s) before she can get to the deeper issues. Being open and honest will help your counsellor, help you.
Your counsellor will ask you a series of questions about your life. For example, because family situations play an important role in who you are, she'll ask about your family history and your current family situation.
Other than knowing the reason you sought counselling, the counsellor will attempt to find out if you're suffering from other symptoms. Your counsellor will use this information to better understand your problem.
