Sometimes in counselling the counsellor is able to see deeply into the troubles hidden beneath the surface for the client.
This can be confronting for the client yet at the same time freeing, that someone has seen the true pain inside and safely held that in the counselling space. It enables you as the client to gain insight, understanding and perspective without judgement or consequence.
What’s insight worth? If you know how you work, why you feel what you feel, why you do what you do, change is not only possible but probable.
