Co-Counselling provides an opportunity for people to support each other to get on with life in an emotionally healthy, rational and creative way. This can include developing self-confidence, becoming more comfortable with emotions and dealing effectively with issues from the past that are affecting the present.
In a Co-Counselling session people usually work in pairs taking equal time to be 'client' and 'counsellor' in turn. The approach is client-centred: the client is in charge of his or her session, while the counsellor takes on a support role.
Co-Counselling International (CCI) is a peer network of co-counsellors. Its main purpose is to provide opportunities for co-counsellors to contact each other and to meet up in sessions, groups and workshops.
