What is mental health and wellbeing?

“Mental health is not just the absence of mental disorder. It is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” (World Health Organisation, 2015).

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a process of exploring and understanding thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and patterns. It is a form of “talking therapy”, Talking to a counsellor will help people to explore those difficult feelings and emotions that they are perhaps unable to discuss with family and friends. It helps people to make sense of their life experiences and find ways to change or solve problems.
