Likely "counselling", but we all counsel others, best friends on occasion providing the most benefit.
In capable hands platonic love can go a long way. Those of us that are "wholly human" are natural counselors. Qualification might help, but equally, there are those with very considerable ability without the benefit of any borrowed information. They have this ability through studious examination and reexamination of both personal life experience, and of others through their experiences. This comes entirely naturally for some, even unavoidably. Among those that are well qualified, a friend of mine holds a degree, some have no natural feeling nor ability in the area of counselling whatsoever. My friend, she`s not alone, can only even cope in trying to support others whilst on a two day week, she privately hates the work, and the rest of the time she is engaged in car boot sales to make ends meet. I personally have no qualification, but then, neither do I charge a fee, What I do possess however is my fifty solid years of joyous dedication to helping others, not for financial gain, just for its own sake.

Continued: Back when my mom was dyeing, Hubbard`s Ward, Southend Hospital, I`ll always remember, it was not the professional psychotherapist that successfully consoled me, but rather, a duty nurse through just her natural ability to counsel.

Not everything worth having must have a price tag attached to it, and nowhere is that more true than here.

Hi Just to say that I often get stuck between the two theories of, either, facing embracing and dealing with emotional problems ,or leaving them alone. I really wish there was a useful body of knowledge that would address this real issues for me. I think it's worth discussing as group psychotherapy (Freudian) was very painful for me.I felt bad before during and after and I don't think I ever really knew if it was helpful because it was painful or not.I am currently suffering a great deal and have tried many techniques but not sure what I need. I do know what I don't need which is the sort of quick fix throw away advice.
