When a person seeks counselling, they want a safe space where they can talk, be heard and understood and to gain perspective to whatever could be troubling them. The client- counsellor relationship is thus based on empathy, support, trust and comfort, so that the client can talk about their most vulnerable emotions and thoughts without feeling hesitant or feel that they are being judged.
