Behavioural issues can be difficult to manage and can cause a lot of distress for both the person experiencing the difficulties and their loved ones. In some cases, behavioural issues can be so severe that they impact a person’s ability to function in everyday life. Thankfully, there is help available for those who are struggling.
A psychologist can help manage behavioural issues in a number of ways. Talk therapy can help with understanding and coping with difficulties. They may also provide behavioural therapy, which can help teach the person new skills or coping mechanisms to manage their behavioural issues.

Counselling typically follows a series of steps that form the foundation of the therapeutic process. It begins with the initial assessment or intake, where the counsellor gathers information about the client’s background, concerns, and goals. The next step involves establishing rapport and building a trusting relationship between the client and the counsellor. After rapport is established, the goal-setting phase takes place where the counsellor and client collaboratively set objectives for therapy. The core part of counselling involves the intervention phase, during which various therapeutic techniques are employed to address the client’s issues and work toward their goals. Throughout this phase, the counsellor engages in ongoing assessment to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments to the treatment plan. Finally, once goals are met or significant progress is made, the counselling process moves to termination or conclusion, where the counsellor and client review the achievements and discuss strategies for maintaining progress. Often, a follow-up appointment may be scheduled to check in on the client’s well-being after the end of formal counselling. These steps may not always be linear and can sometimes overlap or be revisited as needed.
Counselling psychology is a form of therapy that helps people cope with various life challenges. It can be used to treat a wide range of issues, such as anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. Counselling psychology is based on the idea that people are capable of overcoming any challenge if they have the right tools and support.
