Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like behind the door of a counsellor’s room? Experienced counsellor and psychotherapist Claire Hughes gave us a quick look at her work space.

From this piece, we can visually appreciate the layout of a room of therapist. Whatever your reason for deciding to see a counsellor, the first time can be daunting for some. For many people, they might wonder what to expect upon their first visit. One of the main obstacles in front of someone who is seeking help is the unknown of counselling and therapy.

It is important that a person is made to feel at ease with their decision. Seeing a visual representation of the place they will receive their help, might be the one thing that starts a positive journey of well-being for the client.

If you or anyone you know, is struggling with mental health, don’t be afraid to look for help. According to Claire, “one of the strongest things a person can do for themselves is to seek help.
