Counselling or psychotherapy?


Counselling is generally considered a relatively short-term option where a specific problem may be looked at over a period of weeks or a few months. This might be a problem at work, a one-off relationship difficulty or a recent bereavement.


Psychotherapy is a longer-term option, with the intention of making sense of difficulties that seem to repeat themselves in your life. This might include destructive relationship patterns, mood swings and anxious feelings, drug and alcohol misuse or problems with food.

Psychotherapy might involve more than one appointment a week, but this is optional and based on the specific needs of the individual.
