Counselling and Psychotherapy in Loughton and Woodford Green, Essex.
Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose.(BACP)
Psychotherapy aims to help clients gain insight into their difficulties or distress, establish a greater understanding of their motivation, and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping or bring about changes in their thinking and behaviour.
Psychotherapy involves exploring feelings, beliefs, thoughts and relevant events, sometimes from childhood and personal history, in a structured way with someone trained to help you do it safely. (UKCP)
Counselling and Psychotherapy are often considered to be similar and overlap in many ways. The main difference between the therapies is the amount of time a client is recommended to attend sessions in order to resolve issues. Generally a practitioner offering short-term treatment is known as a Counsellor whilst a practitioner offering longer term treatment, with two or more years of training will usually be known as a Psychotherapist.
