Speaking to a counsellor or therapist has lots of benefits. If you’re having negative thoughts, managing a health issue, or experiencing difficult emotions or events, speaking to a trained professional can help.
There are lots of different types of therapy, and most involve confidential conversations between you and a registered practitioner. This might be one-on-one, in a group, over the phone, or with your family or partner.
Counselling, or talking therapy, can be painful or uncomfortable, and can bring up difficult memories. Be prepared to open up and face some tough emotions as part of the process.
