Seeing you through a process
Do you need to run some ideas around with someone who isn’t emotionally invested or involved in your situation? Perhaps you’re in the middle of a conflict and are looking for an objective view on things. Or you’re going through some life changes, or checking out a new social scene, and would like some support through the process.
Essentially, the issues you would like to look at are external to you but are impacting your life or work. This isn’t psychotherapy – I would say it’s closer to supportive problem solving.
