What is the difference between Psychotherapy and Counselling?
Counselling is usually shorter term and looks at changing behaviours which are currently not helping you. Psychotherapy is usually longer term and will look in more depth at emotions, behaviours and patterns. Longer term work, usually looks not only at what you do, but asks why?
The first session will usually be an initial assesment, which basically means I will gather information from you and ask you to tell me more about what has bought you into therapy.
Each session thereafter is difficult to describe as it will be based around what material is bought into the room on the day.
Sessions will last 50 minutes and we will meet in the same place, same day and time each week.
As a transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist, I have been trained in different theories and methods (i.e Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic theories to mention a few), which means I am able to adjust the sessions according to your needs . The transpersonal aspect to my training is to also take into account and look at your spiritual dimension or in other words, your souls journey.
