What is therapy?

Therapy is commonly referred to as Counselling or Psychotherapy. It involves meeting a therapist on a weekly basis for 50 minutes. You explore with a therapist the issues you have presented. This may include talking about life events, both past and present, feelings, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. Together you will explore and identify ways to resolve your difficulties, find ways of coping and moving forward towards healing.

What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy?

The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) has not made distinctions between these two terms, therefore, it can be viewed as an umbrella term that covers a variety of talking therapies. Having said that, the term counselling is usually used for short-term work and typically concentrates on one issue that the client wants to address; whilst the term psychotherapy is usually used for longer term work, allowing in-depth exploration of past and present issues

Why have therapy?

Sometimes the struggles we are experiencing in our lives can feel overwhelming and difficult to share. We may feel a sense of unhappiness, loneliness, a lack of fulfilment or anger where we may or may not be able to identify the causes. A wide range of issues can trigger such feelings including: anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self-esteem, sexual or domestic abuse, relationship issues, or a change in circumstances such as: divorce, redundancy, starting a new job, moving house or becoming a parent.

Working together therapeutically I can create a safe and non-judgemental space where you can feel comfortable to talk. Sometimes it’s easier to talk to someone independent than to relatives or friends.
