Anxiety and Depression counselling helps the client to express his emotions, make sense of experiences that are confusing and distressing. A counsellor is not a magician or he does not carry a manual of easy solution,instead he relies on patiently working through the various issues brought by the client.Counselling recognizes the vulnerability of each client seeking help,which places the counsellor in a very important position. Counsellors respect the client’s point of view even when they appear to be absurd to the entire world. Counselling gives the counsellee the opportunity to think and feel about himself in a new way. In the counselling process there is an expectation of confidentiality.
During the counselling session the client is encouraged to express his emotions, views, feelings and thoughts. By discussing the important issues, the counsellor helps him to understand his problem and cope up with the them. It is mostly during ones teens or early adulthood one has the first bout of depression.The family members and friends may fail to understand the depressed person’s situation. Apart from the daily stress, anger, shame, fear, frustration and guilt are a few emotions associated with depression. With every session the counsellee explores his skills to fight depression. Counsellor is the one in front of whom the counsellee can vent out his pent up emotions.
