What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling and Psychotherapy refer to a process of meeting with a professionally trained therapist in an individual or group setting to discuss and help manage personal issues.
While friends and family can provide support in many situations, they may be too close to the problems; we might want to protect them from our distress; or we may feel too ashamed of our feelings to share them with those closest to us.
A psychotherapist can help us go deeper, beyond what we already know. Patterns of feelings and thoughts which have been with us for most of our lives seem ’normal’ – counselling and psychotherapy help us connect to what we have not let ourselves be aware of. It can be hard work - but with great rewards.
Although there are many differnt approaches to counselling and psychotherapy, the main and most important thing they all have in common is the realtionship between the client and the therapist. It is the relationship that heals therefore entering psychotherapy is buliding a new trusting relationship that will help to overcome past and present difficulties.
