What is Co-counselling?

What is Co-counselling? Co-counselling is a self-directed approach to emotional healing and personal development that involves peer-to-peer counseling sessions between individuals. It is a form of non-professional counseling that emphasizes mutual support and self-help. In co-counselling, individuals take turns being the counselor and the client. The sessions are structured and typically involve a set amount of time for each role, with the counselor providing an empathetic and non-judgmental listening ear and the client discussing their feelings and experiences. The goal is to provide a safe space for individuals to explore their emotions and develop new coping skills, while also building trust and deepening connections with others. Co-counselling can be done in a one-on-one setting or in group sessions. It is based on the idea that individuals have the capacity to heal themselves and that by sharing their experiences and emotions with others, they can gain insights, perspective, and support. Co-counselling is not a substitute for professional therapy or mental health treatment, but it can be a valuable complement to these approaches. Shervan K Shahhian
