Understanding Mental Health: What Isn’t Counselling and What Should We Watch out For? (Tamil)
What isn’t Counselling:There is a misconception that counselling may offer one a fix to their problem, or one will be told what to do. Counselling will be effective only when it is facilitated by a trained therapist. The role of the counsellor is not to judge you, but rather to help you gain a realistic perspective of your concern, and help you see patterns of behaviours that you or others concerned may engage in. It is not a directive process but rather a process that helps you reflect, process and gain insight.
