Whilst there are many different types of counselling, the common element is the sharing of a safe, secure space between the client and the counsellor. This means that deeply personal issues can be talked through and explored, enabling the client to consider and decide on however they may choose to move forward in life. Confidentiality is a primary value, meaning that the client does not need to worry that what is talked about will be related to others in their life. There are basically no taboo subjects.
