How Counselling is better than talking to a friend?

It is good to talk. We all do, at times to your parents; at times to your sibling and most of the time to a friend. For it is only a friend who will understand and hand hold you. Particularly, when you do not want to pain your parents with your pain.

A friend understands, empathizes but for his/her love for you will see only your side and not all sides.

A Counsellor also listens, understands, empathizes and does a bit more, that is find a solution. A Counsellor is objective and will not be influenced by your personal feelings. They will be unbiased when looking at the situation and hearing your story.

Non-judgmental and fair will help you find your path to recovery and self discovery.

  • A counsellor is unbiased; a friend is not.
  • A good counsellor plays many roles; a friend plays a friend.
  • In a counselling, focus is solely you and your queries; in a friendship it is about each other.
  • A counsellor will be empowering and insightful; a good friend will be caring and supportive.
  • A counsellor finds a solution, a friend may just hear a problem.

Many a times life brings you at a point when you do not even wish to bother a friend. Or the sheer difficulty of being connected to someone who is on the other side of globe. Perhaps time and distance has grown them apart. Each one is wrapped up in their own little thing and much as you need you are unable to knock the door.

But then you need to talk because, It is good to talk, good to share. Yes, it is good to be heard unconditionally. It is good to be non-judged and supported.

Oh yes! It is good to have a friend when in a problem and a counsellor when you need a solution.

Find them both, it is a win-win.
