The definition of ‘advice’ is ‘guidance and recommendations’. Sometimes I might suggest various exercises or resources to help manage anxiety or depression, or to understand your history, or to change how you are behaving in a current relationship. But the exercises are a way of helping you to understand more about yourself and learn to help yourself with coping strategies and techniques. I am never going to say, ‘do this, be this way, stop doing that, change to be like this’. My role is to guide and support you, not to tell you what to do or how to be.
