What happens in a counselling session?

As a counsellor Jiselle’s role is to help you come to terms with any problems you may be facing with the ultimate aim of overcoming them. Her intention is to help you find your own answers. From the first session you will be clarifying what it is you would like to achieve from your sessions. Depending on what it is that has brought you to counselling will determine the approach that Jiselle takes when she is working with you.

The aim of the counselling and coaching programs is to develop skills, build on strengths that you already possess while bringing awareness to limiting beliefs and patterns that may be holding you back. It is important to Jiselle that you feel you are in a safe and confidential space where you are comfortable to explore the issues that brought you to counselling in the first place.

What does a counsellor not do?

Counselling is not a quick fix and Jiselle will not be telling you what to do. The counselling process, will equip you with the skills to respond to your life in new and more positive ways. It is the counselling alliance between the two of that enables that to happen.

How many sessions will you need?

This depends on each individual. Some issues can be successfully resolved in a few sessions. In other cases working on a particular issue may bring up deeper unresolved issues that need further investigation. Jiselle has a range of programs and packages to make counselling and coaching affordable for you. Always discuss with Jiselle if you are experiencing financial hardship. She will always do her utmost to find a way to make therapy possible. How to get the best out of counselling?
