Counselling is a skilled way of helping individuals with personal issues and difficulties. Counsellors are trained to listen and to help you make the changes you wish for in your life. The counsellor works with you to help you make sense of your difficulties and move forward in your life.
To benefit from counselling you need to be ready and able to commit to attending regular weekly sessions and engage in the process with your counsellor.
Your counsellor will not judge you or tell you what to do. She or he is there to help and encourage you. At Cardiff Mind we offer counselling to men and women aged 18 and over and resident in Cardiff. Our counsellors are all volunteers. Some are already qualified and others are in the final stages of training which requires them to gain practical experience.
There are relatively few free counselling services in the Cardiff area and the demand for counselling is high which mean we always have a waiting list. If you are interested in having counselling at Cardiff Mind please telephone 029 2040 2040 for further information and to arrange an introductory appointment.
