What is Counselling or Psychotherapy?

Counselling and Psychotherapy are talking based therapies, therapy is a way to work on emotional concerns and mental wellbeing. Therapy challenges you to look within yourself whilst working on the worries you are facing, with the aim of you understanding and finding new ways to approach difficult feelings and situations.

Typically therapy looks like a one to one session where an individual will explore presenting concerns or life difficulties with a therapist. In session, a therapist will build a therapeutic relationship with the individual, creating a comfortable and safe space for exploration and processing of events. 

Within your psychotherapy sessions, there will be an element of using interventions alongside talking therapy. Interventions are techniques or tasks given to help the individual work on self management skills for said concerns outside of the therapy room.
