Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what issue concerning your early years and/or adult life you discuss. The aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and discover a solution that is appropriate for you.

Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you encounter. It facilitates your consciousness of parts of your unconscious. The objective of psychoanalytic therapy is for you to gain personal insight and use it if you wish to.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious meaning of the issues you experience. It facilitates you in becoming conscious of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-comprehension to give you choices.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends psychodynamic therapy for anorexia nervosa, depression, self harm, social anxiety disorder and substance dependence.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you face. It considers your thoughts, emotions and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or find appropriate ways of coping.
