What does a counsellor do?

Counsellors generally have a minimum of a postgraduate diploma (TYHO’s Professional Counsellors all have at least a Master’s in Counselling degree), and are highly skilled in applying integrative therapies to assist people in working through their personal and emotional issues. They tend to adopt a more person-centred approach that focuses on the overall wellbeing of their clients when helping them address specific problems. If you would like to talk about a specific issue (eg adjustment to a new job, coping with loss, problems at school), then a counsellor may be more appropriate to approach. Note: Different countries utilise different nomenclature. For instance, in India, the terms “counselling psychologists” and ”psychotherapists” are frequently used, but not “counsellors”.
