The Importance of Guidance Counselling

Guidance and counselling can be extremely beneficial for a number of diverse reasons. Firstly, like any form of counselling, it can help people feel listened to, in a safe space devoid of judgement.


A Guidance Counsellor has both the professional skills and interventionist tools that allow them to build an overall picture of their clients and their needs. Through a talking process, a guidance counsellor initially aims to understand you and your needs by utilising professional counselling skills.


There are a number of different reasons why people go for guidance counselling sessions. They could be faced with redundancy, unemployment, college choices, career choices, and perhaps are in need of support as they navigate their way through any of the mentioned areas. Some people see a Guidance Counsellor as a sign holder: holding up the signs that they need to get to their destination. In fact one of the main goals of a guidance counsellor is to help clients understand themselves so they can assist them in finding a fulfilling life in relation to their future education and career.


We are living in a world where there are endless occupational and educational options; we are also living in a world gripped by recession where unemployment figures continue to rise.  Yes, there are more options but there are also more related problems. Society and its’ structures continue to change rapidly and the amount of new information people are expected to decipher and absorb seems to be growing just as quickly. 


These considerable factors can often leave people feeling confused as to ‘their next step’ – making the availability of a trained Guidance Counsellor a vital support for many.


Guidance Counsellors can provide valuable information, guidance and support for a person who might be struggling with life choices. Facing life changing decisions can often place the decision maker in a place of isolation.


A guidance counsellor can accompany and assist you in ensuring you make the decisions that are the right ones for you, in terms of your personal and professional needs.
