What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling and Psychotherapy plays a crucial role in improving the health and wellbeing of our society. It helps people to talk about their feelings, think about their choices or their behaviour, and can help people make positive changes in their lives.

The counselling professions include a range of different titles and specialisms, with practitioners working in a variety of settings. For example, a psychotherapist working in a hospital is likely to be more concerned with severe psychological disorders than a colleague working in private practice.

Counsellors working in voluntary agencies deal mainly with everyday problems but may be qualified to offer more.

People seek counselling to help them resolve emotional, psychological and relationship issues. You may be experiencing difficult and distressing events in your life, such as bereavement, divorce, health issues or job concerns. Or maybe you have more general underlying feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life.

Some people feel isolated and have no one else to talk to, but even if you have  supportive family and friends can find it difficult to talk to others about feeling anxious or depressed. You may find it easier to talk about personal, family or relationship issues with an independent and professional therapist.
