What is the Difference: Counselling or Psychic Reading???
I was guided to write about the differences and similarities between counselling and psychic readings. There is some very big differences that can help you make a very clear distinction about what the help that you want in order to empower yourself and to improve your own quality of life.
What is Counselling?
Counselling is mostly define by many counselling professionals and accredited associations as a talking therapy that involves a trained and accredited therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues.
Sometimes the term “counselling” is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.
What can counselling help with:
Counselling can help you cope with a range of issues and needs (here’s some examples but not limited to)
- Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)
- An upsetting physical health condition, such as infertility
- A difficult life event, such as bereavement and loss, relationship breakdowns, work-related stress
- Dealing with difficult emotions – such as low self-esteem, anger, or confidence
- Other issues such as sexual identity
What to expect from a counselling session:
Most counselling sessions take place as a booked appointment – however, some counselling services centres and other counselling workplaces except walk-ins. Your trained therapist will encourage you to talk about your feelings, emotions and what is currently going on in your life. They’re job is to listen to you, without any form of judgment or criticisms.
Counsellors are an excellent support for an empathic ear for anyone who needs someone to talk to. While they can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought progress – as well as helping you find solutions to your problems counsellors most likely will not give their clients/patients advice or tell you what to do.
Counselling sessions can take place:
- Face to face
- In a group
- Over the phone
- By Email
- Online via live chat services
Counselling sessions can be a few short sessions over a few weeks or months; or they may occur over a longer period of time.
The important thing to remember is that is perfectly okay to seek help. Counselling is open and available to anyone who needs it: men, women, children – please seek your local counselling services online.
Psychic Readings are very different from counselling services. A psychic reader uses their psychic gifts to channel energy or messages using divination tools for their clients. Psychic readers have a range of gifts that vary from reader and reader.
There’s many psychic abilities that a psychic or intuitive reader can have; here’s just some examples: clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairaudience (clear feeling), clairempathy (clear emotion), and clairsentience (clear feeling, claircongizance (clear knowing) and clairalience (clear smelling). Many of these abilities can be used or picked up during a reading with a client.
Please remember that each reader has their own unique way to connect to the Divine/Spirit; Angels or Spirit Guides. Everyone single psychic reader has their own divination tools to also assist them in their connection to Spirit. Some examples of this could be (but not limited to) tarot or oracle cards, runes, their intuition, pendulum, astrology, numerology, or mediumship.
The Law of Free Will
In each psychic reading – a reader will be guided to read the energy of the client for that moment of time and space. It’s vital to remember that as human beings we have the Law of Free Will. This means that we have the right to make our own decisions and choices – we don’t need to rely on someone else to make a decision or choice for us. This Law of Free Will is also very much respectful by our spiritual team of Angels, Ascended Masters and Spirit guides. (Or whom you feel best resonates with you) They too, respect our right to free will to make our own decisions in our life.
Throughout our life, currently in this very moment – and even past lives we have learnt value lessons to further our soul to learn and grow. The Law of Free Will since the beginning of time of coexistence with the Divine we need to learn from our mistakes so that the karma – both good and bad is learnt, reflected on and released so that we can continue to strive to not only to help ourselves….but to help each other to both co-exist. Our soul vibrates like a heartbeat and in turn, so does our planet.
A medium reader would most likely use their 3rd eye to channel messages from a loved one who has passed. Sometimes a medium would use a divination took like tarot cards to help them collect more information about a passed loved one. Mediumship readings can take some time to gain a connection from a loved one. While it is possible to get a connection straight away, please understand that connections can take some time – it can take a few days. So it’s important to remain patient with your medium reader when this occurs.
Connections and Readings
With all psychics’ readers, it can be very draining to constantly read for others. This is because we are reading the energy, and connecting to the Universal Energy/The Divine/Spirit; (or anything else you wish to call it).
To be honest – sometimes you might get a connection with a client – and sometimes you may not. Now, this isn’t to say that we won’t get a psychic connection – it all depends on other factors such as self-care for the lightworker, and if we are stressed ourselves, or if we are running late in traffic – sometimes to the mystery of all that Divine – sometimes Spirit just won’t allow us that information.
What a Psychic Reader can’t tell you:
- Like Counsellors, Psychic Readers won’t tell you what you can and can’t do. You are ultimately responsible for your life choices and decisions.
- When you will die – this is between you and the Divine Creator.
- A psychic reader can’t tell you everything – we are reading your energy at that moment in time and energy. Come on, you probably want some surprise in your life!!
- We can’t tell you the lottery numbers – sorry! Or if you will win that lottery! It is not ethical for us to do so. However, a psychic advisor can let you know if they see money coming or finances improving.
- Bring that special someone into your life! Okay, well, in some readings we can see when love is coming, however – we can’t make him or her fall in love with you.
Both Counselling and Psychic Services
Both of these services are Professional services. More often than not, you will find that you will be charged a standard fee for a service. Sometimes both professional services may have several fees for several different services due to the length of a session for example. This would range from country to country and from person to person. I would suggest to contact either a counsellor or psychic (depending on your needs) that you can trust and research their list of services and fees.
Both professional counsellors and psychics are morally and ethically bound by confidentiality and privacy laws. While this does range from country to country; it’s important to remember to always seek professionals who are both highly trained and qualify. Please seek your local counselling or psychic services in your country or town.
Please use your discretion and best judgement at all times.
