Non directive Counselling

BACP - British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counseling is a process through which one person helps another by purposeful conversation in an understanding atmosphere.

It seeks to establish a helping relationship in which the one counseled can express their thoughts and feelings in such a way as to clarify their own situation, come to terms with some new experience, see their difficulty more objectively, and so face their problem with less anxiety and tension.

Its basic purpose is to assist the individual to make their own decision from among the choices available to them. see supervisors
(British Association for Counselling, Rugby 1989)

you could also call it advanced parenting

the only way to help a suicidal child is by being cool at arms lengh

from my email:-

But I do worry, that is what Mothers do, but the sending of " you cannot help a suicidal person that you are emotionaly involved with" is the line that is posted above my computor and was the start of my wellbeing.

what you can do is seek councilling yourself
