Both ‘psychotherapy’ and ‘counselling’ are terms that are used interchangeably to describe the same process of overcoming personal difficulties and working towards positive changes. People seek counselling to help them resolve emotional, psychological and relationship issues. They may be experiencing difficult and distressing events in their lives, such as bereavement, divorce, health issues, job concerns, or they may have more general underlying feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life. Counselling can be useful for anyone who wants to explore the way they’re thinking or feeling further, as well as anyone experiencing a problem or issue they are keen to resolve. Common subjects that can be addressed within counselling include the following:

  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Relationships
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Illness
  • Mental health issues
  • Career options
  • Others
