Experiencing Counselling Video

In this video six people share their experiences which led them to seek counselling.

Maureen Moore, an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, talks about counselling and explores some of the issues relating to what counselling is and how we go about choosing a counsellor. She explains the need to think about what you want from the counselling relationship and that the relationship will be influenced by the person of the counsellor as well as the therapeutic approach that they adopt.

The video is divided into three sections as follows.

In this first section, we hear from the individuals that they all had different life experiences which led them to seek counselling. Experiences like loss, abuse, and separation, ending of relationships, bottling up emotions, fear, self doubt and confusion about own feelings are some of the reasons presented. Each person and situation is unique and therefore we see that their needs are equally different.

In the second section the group discuss the process of finding a counsellor. They talk about the different ways in which they identified people they would talk to and how they eventually decided who they would continue to see.

In the third section the group talk about several topics including enrichment, support, help with clarifying the confusing ‘why’ questions in life, resolving relationship problems, finding answers to questions, increasing confidence, not being overwhelmed by feelings and by others, and working on the future.
