Counsellingvaries with regards to the needs of those seeking help (helpee). It can, for example, be a direct form of support enabling management of learning and social functioning, guidance in relation to defining goal and choosing courses of action, or consultation to support systems surrounding the individual(s) or promoting innovations to better their practices. All forms of counselling involve initiating a solution focused process that promotes learning and growth for helpee(s).
