Setting the scene

Setting the scene…

  • Psychology became very poignant after the Second World War with a number of war veterans returning home suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, (PTSS) not that it had been diagnosed as that at that time.

  • There was a significant increase in the number of patients being referred to psychologists, and counsellors so therefore an increase in the number of persons needing qualifications in these roles.

  • Basically this was classified as negative based psychology, patients’ were “broken” and were seeing or having counselling to be mended or “fixed” so they could get back into mainstream lifestyles.

  • Counseling is the art of helping basically healthy people work through the normal developmental issues, decisions, problems and even crises that come to all of us in life. Some examples: choosing a career, losing a parent, divorce.

  • Sometimes it just helps to have somebody to talk to, somebody whose compassion we trust and whose wisdom we respect.
