Personal Counselling/Therapy

What is counselling/therapy?
Counselling/therapy provides you with a space to explore options for problems that
are causing you distress or preventing positive life experiences.
Why speak to a counsellor/therapist?
Talking to friends and family is very important. However, sometimes having
someone who is trained to listen and is non-judgemental can support you further
in dealing better with your issues in a safe space.

Why come for counselling/therapy?
In counselling/therapy you can deal with personal problems that are negatively
affecting you.

Whatever life has offered you, you have the power to positively manage your own
life and to take your own decisions.

Group Activities
Different life experiences can influence our well-being. By participating in group
workshops you have the opportunity to discuss with other students and the
counsellors/therapists various personal and social themes of your choice. Group
work enables a type of interaction that is not possible in one-to-one sessions.
Group interaction helps in addressing emotional distress through mutual sharing
of experiences. Through these sessions, you will also learn to help each other and
to work as a team. Acquiring group communication skills can be beneficial on a
personal and academic level, as well as in your future workplace.

Attivitajiet fi gruppi
L-esperjenzi differenti li ngħaddu minnhom fil-ħajja jaffettwaw kemm inħossuna tajjeb
jew le. Meta tipparteċipa fi gruppi, int ikollok l-opportunità li tiddiskuti ma’ studenti
oħrajn u mal-counsellors/terapisti diversi temi personali u soċjali li tagħżel int. Ixxogħol
fil-grupp jagħti lok għal kwalità ta’ interazzjoni li mhix possibbli waqt sessjonijiet
individwali. L-interazzjoni fi grupp tgħin biex tindirizza l-istat emozzjonali billi titkellem
fuq l-esperjenzi personali tiegħek. Bis-saħħa ta’ dawn is-sessjonijiet, inti titgħallem ukoll
tgħin lill-oħrajn u taħdem f’tim. Il-ħiliet li tikseb, u li jagħmluk kapaċi tikkomunika fi
grupp, jistgħu jiswewlek ta’ benefiċċju fuq livell personali u akkademiku, kif ukoll fil-post
tax-xogħol tiegħek fil-futur.
