It is not giving advice... There are situations in life, there are family and job related conflicts when one might feel it is too hard to make up his/her mind. Friends cannot always help in the best way, it might be a good idea to turn to a professional helper. Counseling is of 3-5 sessions aiming at getting out of the blockage, to find own solutions. The goal of counseling is always to improve the quality of life and to broaden the capacity to live well with others.
