Counselling is a process in which one person seeks to help another person to better understand himself* and his life circumstances, and to face and work through life issues with which he is struggling, with a view to making choices that will result in growth both intrapersonally (within himself) and interpersonally (between himself and another or others). This process occurs within the context of a therapeutic relationship.
Counselling is offered to anyone for spiritual, emotional, social, behavioral, interpersonal, pre-marital, family and AIDS related issues.
