Counselling and Psychotherapy are forms of ‘talk therapy’ offered by professionally quailified, credentialed and competent therapists providing confidential, supportive spaces in which to talk about concerns, issues or quandaries.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can be useful when seeking to make changes related to current concerns of personal or professional nature or when seeking greater self-awareness through reflection, exploration and understanding of evolving behaviours and life patterns. It may be brief with a limited number of sessions or more long term.
There are many types of Counselling and Psychotherapy many of which have been substantially researched confirming evidence of the benefits of such therapy in areas such as:
- Anxiety & Depression
- Grief & Loss
- Mental Health
A key factor in seeking Counselling or Psychotherapy is finding a reputable, appropriately qualified Counsellor or Psychotherapist with whom the person can work. A doctor may help with suggestions or, where necessary, referrals.
