What is Counselling/Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy/Counselling is the practice of understanding and resolving emotional problems, relationship difficulties and life challenges through talking in a confidential and impartial setting. The therapist helps to shed new light on these experiences so that you can gain a better understanding of yourself and of the situation, and to arrive at your own solutions for living in a more satisfying way.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help with:
- Anxiety and stress
- Relationship Difficulties
- Bereavement or loss
- Chronic unhappiness
- Loss of meaning or purpose
- Coping with change
- Eating disorders
- Sexual problems
- Trauma and abuse
- Self harm and suicidal feelings
- Life stages such as adolescence/retirement
and many other life challenges
Counselling or Psychotherapy?
This is a subject of great debate. Some would say there is little or no difference. Others would say that counselling is usually short-term, and focused on a specific problem; whereas psychotherapy is often longer-term, addressing the underlying causes of a person’s difficulties.
