An awful lot of counselling is about giving a person a safe place to talk about the issues they are struggling with in an environment where feel confident that they will be listened to and understood. So don't worry that that's all you are doing - indeed resisting the temptation to offer advice is the hardest part of learning to be a good counsellor IME - especially having recently suffered someone making that mistake with me, and knowing I struggle with the tendency in myself, as I tend to demonstrate on this board...
