I am often asked to describe the difference between Psychotherapy and Counselling. So this is my humble attempt.
Psychotherapy involves a rich experience of self-discovery and self-understanding which, when combined with a supportive and empathetic relationship with the therapist, enables healing and growth. It examines the whole life of the individual (past, present and future), but is ultimately about making healing, long-lasting and life-enhancing changes.
Psychotherapy can embrace a range of treatment modalities including the analytically-oriented therapies, cognitive behaviour therapy, resource therapy,
and relational therapy. I have training in all of these modalities. Because it is not limited to one type of treatment, psychotherapy offers flexibility and can be tailored to the unique needs of each individual.
