What is Counselling?

Counselling is the process of supporting and guiding individuals, partners, families, children and youth to resolve personal, social, or psychological challenges. It empowers those engaged in the process to accomplish mental and emotional wellness, through the acknowledgment and healing of trauma.

Our counselling services focus on improving overall well-being, alleviating feelings of distress, and resolving crises. It is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client, resulting in improved communication skills, healthier relationships, and decreased tension in the mind.

Which Service is Right For Me?

If you are wondering if Coaching Is right for you, we feel it is right for everyone who has previously engaged in counselling or psychotherapy services. It is imperative that individuals ensure their past trauma has been acknowledged and appropriately treated, prior to working with a Coach on personal and professional visions and goals.

It can be confusing to decide between counselling, psychotherapy, or coaching services, and our goal is to break that down, making your choice a little less overwhelming. At Aruma, the only element separating our counselling and psychotherapy services is professional registration and their regulating bodies.
