Counsellors help their clients work through issues associated with employment and careers, emotional and social problems as well as helping them deal with addiction. They can operate within an institution – such as a school, university or hospital – or in a private setting working directly with clients. Counsellors will more often than not have a solid working knowledge of therapies, such as cognitive behaviour therapy, interpersonal therapy and other talking therapies. As well as dealing directly with clients, they can have contact with couples and families and deal with their clients’ wider social network in order to help them.
