Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which issue regarding your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and find a solution that 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 explores your thoughts, emotions and significant moments in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or discover suitable methods of managing.
