Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which matter concerning your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.
