Counselling and psychotherapy are general terms that include a number of different types of “talking therapies”; each of these has its own particular approach and style. There is a degree of overlap between the terms and often the word “therapy” is used to encompass both.
So therapy is about supporting you to improve the relationship you have with yourself and with others, removing distress from your life and being more fulfilled and content. Therapy may be a difficult or upsetting process but can bring about changes within yourself and in your life.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and a senior accredited with practitioner with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).
