I have heard people go for counselling. The one is unable to handle his inner life goes to a professional person who can help you to overcome your certain problems, abnormal behaviors and psychological disorders.

My main purpose of writing this small article is to highlight the first and the best counselor of the world. Before we come to the conclusion let us see what is counselling and who is the counselor in the term of worldly understanding.

Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment.

A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes). They can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings you have.

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.

There are a number of different forms of counselling, some of which are used in specific circumstances. In all forms of counselling the relationship between counsellor and client is of great importance. Counsellors sometimes work in general practices to treat patients with mental heath problems in primary care.

Although the term counselling implies the giving of advice and guidance, in the past much of the counselling available used a client-centred non directive approach. In this approach the counsellor is passive and tends to rephrase and reflect what the client says. Counselling may be concerned with addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crises, working through conflict, or improving relationships with others. The work of most counsellors in primary care is generalist and is not necessarily linked to any diagnostic categories. In generic counselling, a broad range of techniques is used to help the patient. In specific counselling, a specific model such as psychodynamic counselling or bereavement counselling is used.

Who is the first and the best counselor?

Now we all want to know who is the first and the best counselor of the world? A counselor always help the person to identify his problem and to help him to overcome from his bad situation. But the counselor never takes decision, rather the final decision should from the  patient or client.

In this background, when I was reading this below  passage from the bible some insights came to my mind to reflect that God is the first and the best counselor of the world.

Sirach 15:16-18 

16 He has put fire and water before you;
    you can stretch out your hand
    for whichever you choose.
17 Life and death are in front
of human beings;
    and they will be granted
    whichever they please,
18         because the wisdom
        of the Lord is great;
        he’s mighty in authority,
        he sees everything,

Read the above bible text and see how God wants us to be responsible for what we choose in our life.
