Counselling

What is it and is it suitable for me?
Psychotherapy, Counselling and Life Coaching all use a collaborative treatment approach based on the relationship between client and therapist which aims to improve the client’s well-being and mental health. Improvement is achieved via the mitigation of problematic behaviours, beliefs, thoughts and/or emotions. Ultimately, combined with an increase in personal well-being there should be improvement in relationships, an increase in social skills and personality growth.

Counselling is best suited to assisting clients with specific problems or life events. Counselling is used for acute or episodic trauma such as bereavement or relationship breakdown. Counselling may also be used to alter problematic or unwanted behaviours.

Psychotherapy is a prolonged and intense therapy aimed at achieving personality change. Psychotherapy does not address specific problems but considers overall patterns, chronic issues and recurrent feelings. The focus is on the underlying patterns/issues that fuel ongoing problems. Psychotherapy is best suited to treating long standing behavioural patterns which are no longer useful to the client or are detrimental to the client’s well-being. Psychotherapy is also useful for treating chronic or complex trauma.
