How Therapy Can Help

In practice psychotherapy and counselling have common characteristics. Both look at a wide variety of personal issues and provide support through different life experiences. Counselling tends to be shorter term work and may focus on a specific problem. Whereas psychotherapy can focus on more complex issues, exploring the problem in greater depth and can look at past experiences and life patterns that may be having a negative impact on the present.

Psychotherapy and counselling can provide a confidential space in which you can address issues in a supportive and understanding environment. You can explore your feelings and work through unresolved past experiences and work toward increased hope and optimism for the future. It can help you to make sense of thoughts and feelings that may be causing you difficulty and enable you to feel more secure and in control of your life.
