Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which issue concerning your childhood and/or adulthood you discuss. The aim of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and find a solution which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you confront. It considers your thoughts, feelings and relevant events in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate ways of managing.
