Counselling and Psychotherapy

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

Counselling (and by extension psychotherapy) has many forms but the fundamental features are:-

  • It is non judgemental.
  • It does not usually involve giving directive advice.
  • The practitioner (counsellor) enables the problem to be seen a different light and so help the client (patient) to draw on their own resources to come to an acceptance and hopefully a solution for the problem.
  • The practitioner and client build up a relationship of trust and this enables difficult issues to be explored in an objective and unemotional way although there may well be encouragement to express strong feelings that may have been suppressed in order to aid the healing process.

There are 4 main models of this kind of help:-

  • humanistic
  • cognitive
  • psychodynamic
  • behavioural

There are also very many subsets of these types. The differences are beyond the scope of this introduction and you will need to look into the type practised by any chosen practitioner to decide whether their style would suit you.
