The Simplest way to deﬁne counselling is that "it is the process of encouraging and motivating people to share their feeling and empowering them to either resolve their issues or cope with them". Counselling is very important whether is a crisis, but its relevance goes far beyond crisis situations. There are many misconceptions about counselling, counselling is NOT - giving advice, solving problems. Counselling is helping people to ﬁnd their own solutions to their concerns or problems. Counselling is just a space - a safe space for a client to share thoughts, feeling and perhaps even to vent.
