Psychotherapy and Counselling
Taking the first step towards asking for support can be difficult, but once that
first step has been taken, you will hopefully begin an insightful and rewarding
process of self-discovery that can lead to improvement in many aspects of
Both counselling and psychotherapy can help deal with problems in a
fresh way and enrich our lives generally. Whilst the terms are sometimes used
interchangeably, counselling tends to focus on a specific current problem, whereas
psychotherapy tends to look at more deep-seated issues that are likely to have a basis in the past.
Therapy is an opportunity:
to be listened to
to explore your feelings in a reliable, non-judgemental environment with someone who is not directly involved
to understand yourself better and to make your own choices.
