Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide what matter concerning your early years or adulthood you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a problem and discover a way forward which is appropriate for you.

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


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover suitable ways of coping.

Thoughts on Mental Health

I think women have less 'face' to lose by seeking therapy. They recognise the value of talking at an emotional level with someone who will hear them, without judgement. Men, on the other hand, I believe still feel that it is weak to discuss that they have emotions, never mind that they've been hurt. Those men seeking therapy are possibly more in touch with their feelings.

In other types of relationships, trust develops slowly, over time, by getting to know people. Take the risk and be rewarded by the richness of understanding and honesty you will get from your therapist, without any form of judgement.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"He allowed time for us to talk and was very fair and succinct with his comments. For my part I found that I was able to lose anger that was underlying my situation which I didn't really understand I had, and understood a bit better my relationship. Things have improved and it is ongoing work."
