Counselling involves exploring effective ways to remedy more immediate issues that may be effecting us. Working together in a supportive environment, counselling provides the client with the tools to find resolution. Collaboratively deciding on strategies that can be used to overcome anxiety, stress, loneliness etc. Counselling helps us to recover a feeling of power/control over our emotions and well being leading to more effective self leadership.
Psychotherapy is taking a deeper look at how the past may be influencing and possibly restricting present day living. Childhood or adult experiences can have a lasting effects on us, resulting in certain behaviours or ways of being which may not be helpful to us as adults. The client becomes actively involved in their own healing process, facilitating effective change and healthier ways of being.
