About Counselling and Psychotherapy


Counselling provides a regular time and space for people to talk about their troubles and explore difficult feelings in an environment that is dependable, respectful and confidential.

Counselling can help you deal with specific problems, cope with crises and improve your relationships.

Counselling can also help those who are struggling with difficult feelings such as sadness, anger, depression, anxiety or lack of confidence.

By gaining awareness and insight into your thoughts and feelings, it is possible to make decisions that can change self-defeating behaviour and develop better ways of living.



There is a large area of overlap between counselling and psychotherapy. Generally counselling addresses specific problems and may be more focused and short term. Psychotherapy may be more suited to someone who is experiencing longer-term difficulties, which do not appear to be linked to any particular life event.
