Counselling is for everyday people with everyday problems. Seeing a counsellor does not mean you are "crazy"; rather, you are a person who understands the value of receiving educated guidance from a professional.
Here are some general characteristics of counselling (as opposed to psychology or psychotherapy):
• It is concerned with “normal” problems rather than mental health problems.
• It is concerned with role functioning, with choices to be made, and with actions to be taken.
• It is more concerned with present events than with past events.
• It is more concerned with conscious, rational thinking than with unconscious functioning.
