COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
What does a Counsellor or Psychotherapist do?
A Counsellor or Psychotherapist works towards the improvement of the health and well-being of our society. They help people to talk about their experience and their feelings, to think about their choices or behaviour, and to make positive changes in their lives.
The counselling professions include a range of different titles and specialisms and these are often dependent upon the setting in which the person is working. For example, a psychotherapist working in a hospital is likely to be more concerned with severe psychological disorders than a psychotherapist working in private practice.
Here, on this website, the terms counselling, psychotherapy and therapy are used interchangeably because the differences between them are not absolutely defined outside of specific settings.
Why do people come to Counselling?
People come to counselling to help themselves to resolve emotional, psychological and relationship issues. They may be experiencing difficult and distressing events in their lives such as bereavement, divorce, health issues or job concerns, or they may have a more general underlying feeling of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life.
Some clients feel isolated and as if they have no one else to talk to; but even people within a supportive network of family and friends can find it difficult to talk to them about feeling anxious or depressed. It is often easier to talk about such personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist who has no connection to our daily life.
