Counselling... what is it all about?

Presenter - Skylight Counsellor Kyra - Meeting someone new can be a bit scary sometimes. We might not know what to expect, and what the person is expecting of us. This is completely normal. Sometimes, it can be helpful to have some information before you meet someone new, about what they might be like, and what you might do when you meet together.
This presentation will cover...
  • What is a counsellor?
  • What is the difference between talking to a counsellor compared to a friend, parent or trusted adult?
  • What happens in counselling?
  • What are some of the reasons someone might go to counselling?
  • Feelings... how do I know what my feelings are, and how do I talk about them?
  • How can counselling help?
