Counselling – How we do it
It one of the approaches that is used by the social workers at MSSA society to help people come to terms with any problems that they are facing. It is the duty of our social workers to encourage people who are living with MS as well as family members to talk about what is bothering them in order to uncover the root of the problem and also identify specific ways of thinking. Counselling sessions also help our clients to find ways of coping.
TYPES OF COUNSELLING
MSSA IS USING THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF THERAPY/ COUNSELLING:
Face to face counselling – Make an appointment with one of counsellors to see them in person.
Individual Counselling / Group Counselling – A person may choose to see one of our counsellors individually without being accompanied by anyone.
Group Counselling – Some people prefer group counselling where they will have an opportunity to meet people who are experiencing similar issues. Group Counselling at MSSA is conducted during our support groups by our counsellors.
Telephone Counselling – It is a conversation between two people over the phone instead of meeting in person. This is a form of counselling session that accommodates some of our clients who are too busy to attend face to face counselling sessions.
On line Counselling – It is a form of counselling that offers you a chance to protect your anonymity. On line counselling allows a person to use technology, writing an email to a counselor instead of physically speaking to a counselor.
