What is Counselling? and how it could help you

Counsellors and Psychotherapists use a professional but interpersonal relationship with their clients, to enable them to develop an understanding about themselves and to make changes in their lives.

There are many different styles of Counselling, including Psychodynamic, CBT, Gestalt, Person-Centred and Family Therapy to name just a few. Many Counsellors and Psychotherapists are eclectic in their styles and an initial consultation will enable a client to assess whether the particular style used by the Therapist, is suitable for them. Some Therapists work entirely in the present, whilst others are more interested in a client's past history and family relationships. Therapy is usually offered face to face but can also be available by means of the internet, telephone, or video conferencing.

Although Counselling and Psychotherapy overlap, there are some differences. Counsellors generally focus on specific problems or life changes such as bereavement or addictions, whereas Psychotherapists focus more upon restructuring of the client's personality and will be likely to work over a longer period of time, depending on the clients needs. However, many Therapists are both Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

Counselling and Psychotherapy is invaluable for treating any crisis situation, management of stress, grief and trauma, relationship problems and any emotional or psychological problems. Therapy sessions may be for an individual, a couple, a family or a group, as required.

Consultations are confidential, professional and usually up to an hour in length. Frequency of consultations will depend upon the style of Counselling utilised and the severity of the problem presented and may be either short-term or long-term.
