Can counselling help with shame, vulnerability and guilt?

Take a look at Brene Brown's lecture on shame and vulnerability on TED: http://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_listening_to_shame.html??utm_medium=social&source=email&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=ios-share

Brene argues in this moving talk that shame is an unspoken epidemic, the secret behind many types of emotional issue such as depression, eating disorders and anxiety. She explores what can happen when people confront their shame head-on. Her own humour, humanity and vulnerability shine through every word.

Brene highlights the differences between men and women when it comes to shame, pointing out that women in particular are susceptible to the need to do it all, and to do it perfectly. And she shows how empathy can be the antidote to shame: when someone else, perhaps a counsellor, friend or partner, shows that they understand, shame can be made to evaporate.
