What is Counselling?

Ali's Counselling Services offers you a confidential, secure, supportive environment where you can work through your problems & issues, and have time to reflect upon your circumstances, without judgment. In difficult circumstances, family members and friends are unable to always provide an objective point of view. Ali's Counselling Services offers this objective perspective, thus enabling you, to gain insights and learn strategies to help assist in managing your particular situation. The aim is, that in time this will increase your awareness of yourself, your situation, and the choices that are open to you. At Ali's Counselling Services we provide you the time, space & encouragement to explore and understand the issues you bring. While counselling is not magic or an instant cure, it can help you make effective decisions which will lead to positive changes for now & in the future.
