"What is Co-Counselling?
Co-counselling is reciprocal peer counselling:
Reciprocal: co-counsellors take it in equal turns to be client and counsellor.
Peer: everyone is equal, there are no "experts" trying to "sort out" other people.
Counselling: it is a bit like other forms of counselling in that one person listens while the other talks (or "works" in other ways), but there the similarity ends. It is the person being client who is in charge of the session and the person being counsellor mainly just gives very good attention.
Co-counsellors make their own arrangements to meet up, usually in pairs, for co-counselling sessions.
Co-counselling sessions are free.
Co-counselling can be used to help us get better at most things and in most ways. It can be used to deal with day to day life problems or it can be used to deal with deep personal distress. It is for anyone, not just for people with "problems" – you do not have to be ill to get better."
