What's the best approach for you?

People come to counselling and psychotherapy for many different reasons, and each person is unique in the way they respond to life’s challenges.  It is therefore vital that counselling be specifically tailored, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach.  


Short-term counselling

The counselling relationship aims to provide a safe space to help you better understand yourself and enable long-lasting and meaningful change to enhance your quality of life.  Short-term counselling focuses on practical strategies to help manage current, specific problems.  


Longer-term psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is usually longer-term, with a focus on developing insight into current concerns via deeper understanding of the influence of past experiences, especially the dynamics in your family of origin.  Key themes running through longer-term psychotherapy include developing greater understanding of yourself, your relationships with others and how the past influences who you are now.  Importantly, both counselling and psychotherapy emphasise increasing your capacity for self care.
