Talking therapy, otherwise known as counselling, involves talking to a therapist who is trained to listen in a very unique way.  In fact, very different to anyone you may know.


Counsellors attempt to guide exploration of issues, so you can better understand and deal with emotional problems.

What Is Counselling?

Counselling is a commonly used term for a kind of talking therapy that involves a unique relationship.  Counsellors are trained professionals who can help individuals explore and understand social, personal, emotional, and psychological problems and difficulties.


Some counsellors will give advice, others will guide and assist clients toward their own answers – many will do a bit of both.  Some of the things that make this relationship unique are that counsellors are often trained to be empathic (although some are naturally so), to offer a space of non-judgement, safety, and warmth.


Clients will often find this kind of space very helpful for exploration and relief.  Counsellors are also usually guided by a regulatory body that offers professional and ethical principles for practice.  Counsellors also typically opt to have a supervisor for best practice, this ensures that the work they do is in the best interest of their clients.

About Counselling Services At Phinity Birmingham

At Phinity all of our counsellors are accredited and highly trained and experienced.  They will work with you to build a relationship of trust, one in which you will feel safe, contained, and held.  This will facilitate the kind of climate that you need to explore, understand, and take action in your life, to resolve problems and change behaviour.


The relationship will therefore be goal oriented in some way, and together you and your counsellor will identify your aims for therapy, and ways you might achieve these toward, for instance, improved communication, coping, and strength, self-esteem, behaviour change, and optimal mental health.  We recommend weekly counselling sessions for momentum and effectiveness, which last 50 minutes.

What Issues Can Counselling Help With?

Counselling can help with many kinds of mental health problems, depending on your goals.  For example, it can help individuals improve communication and interpersonal skills, or lead to change in self-defeating behaviours, improved expression of emotions like anger for example, greater self-acceptance, and improved self-esteem.


Counselling services can also be helpful during stressful or traumatic life events to process the impact, or counselling may help individuals make decisions, or to learn about themselves.  There are also various kinds of counselling, for example marriage and family counselling, mental health counselling, educational counselling, substance abuse counselling, rehabilitation counselling, guidance, and career counselling.


Counselling may also benefit individuals who have been troubled by something for an extended period and are unable to resolve it on their own, or when feeling overwhelmed, which can impact wellbeing in ways, for instance leading to stress, anxiety, or depression.
