Carl Jung

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
  • Depression
  • Relationship Difficulties
  • Self-worth
  • Bereavement or loss
  • Anger
  • Chronic unhappiness
  • Loss of meaning or purpose
  • Coping with change
  • Eating disorders
  • Sexual problems
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Addiction
  • 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.
