Counselling and Psychotherapy

landscapeThe curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. – Carl Rogers

Therapy provides a safe and non judgemental place for the person to explore any issues that are impacting on their lives. This enables the person to gain understanding and clarity. It can also facilitate healthier choices about how we live life or relate to ourselves and others.

What is counselling and psychotherapy?

‘Going for Counselling’ or ‘being in therapy’ are sometimes phrases that can sound daunting to people who have not experienced opening up about their problems. It can be difficult to consider exploring your thoughts and feelings and experiences with a stranger. However counselling or therapy gives you a safe place where you can explore and express your thoughts and feelings with support and without judgement. And you can expect a supportive, understanding, empathetic and encouraging relationship with your Counsellor/Therapist.

Counselling tends to be a shorter process, which looks at the present, is problem focused and deals more with day-to-day issues. Psychotherapy tends to be a longer process and often explores the client’s core self, how and why things have become this way, which usually includes reflecting on our personal history. Psychotherapy can help us to become newly conscious of the patterns of how we think, feel and act. Psychotherapy also often uses the relationship between the client and the therapist as a valuable resource to reflect on wider relationship patterns.
