Counselling assists people who are struggling with how they are feeling or feel they are blocked from moving forward in their lives. It also assists people who have experienced difficult circumstances or trauma that is now a barrier for them in living a happy and fulfilled life. In the workplace counselling helps reducing workplace conflict and stress and increases the performance of staff.
Unresolved psychological distress or trauma distorts our view of life and results in unhealthy coping mechanisms that can lead to recurrent patterns of behaviour that keep us stuck in the distress we are trying to avoid. It can result in an inability to form healthy relationships, depression, anxiety and feel like a burden we cannot shake. At its worst it can result in. substance dependency and mental health issues. The best way to develop healthy coping mechanisms is to seek assistance when you are struggling to deal with an element of your life. It is not weakness to seek help; it is smart and adaptive. When you are struggling with personal problems or workplace issues it affects every aspect of your life.
Counselling or coaching can assist staff to stay motivated and strong when working in stressful situations. When a staff member is exposed to a critical incident it isimportant to get adequate debriefing.

The results show that the well-beingof employees who had received counselling through their workplace improvedmeasurably after an average of seven counselling sessions.
