Counselling services operate in a range of ways including face-to-face, telephone and online.   Counselling services provide a structured conversation about addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, working through feelings and inner conflicts or improving relationships with others. Counselling facilitates personal growth, development, self-understanding and the adoption of constructive life practices.
