Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. The aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you encounter. It facilitates you in becoming conscious of aspects of your inner dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy aims to increase your self-comprehension to give you options.

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


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and significant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find suitable methods of managing.
