Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what matter regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. The aim of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward that is appropriate for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you confront. It considers your ideas, feelings and significant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate methods of coping.
