What to Expect

Counselling

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue regarding your early years and/or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a difficulty and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, emotions and actions. It offers you psychological treatments and mental health support. An intention of psychological therapies is to help you alleviate symptoms.

Thoughts on Mental Health

Both counselling and clinical psychologists work in similar ways and in similar settings. They develop their knowledge through research and continuous professional development, which helps them to integrate emerging research into their practices. They can work with adults, couples, groups and children. Both are scientists, and inform their practice by looking to latest research. The distinction between them is, therefore, small. But it is worth considering the practices that make them different. Counselling psychologists generally work with healthier individuals, giving primary care. They are highly trained in the practice of psychotherapy or counselling and are usually trained in at least two therapeutic models, for example psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), systemic therapy, cognitive analytic, solution focused therapy, mindfulness, compassionate mind, or person centred therapy. Clinical psychologists, on the other hand, often focus on individuals with more serious mental health issues, such as psychosis - the kind of mental illness that often means individuals' perception of their world, and their behaviour in it, differs radically from that of healthy individuals. But the two disciplines have more in common than they have differences. A fundamental skill for both is the ability to apply talking therapy. They question intelligently, listen carefully and compassionately without judging. They draw on a large body of theory and methods to help their clients discover strategies to cope with their problems and attain happier, more fulfilling lives.

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Nadia immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease; she had an aura of understanding and this helped me open up and discuss issues that were difficult for me to deal with. Nadia proved to be very patient, her words were calming and she gave me plenty of insights and ideas to think about that have helped incredibly. I went away after every session thinking about what had been discussed, and her advice has helped me shape my behavior in a far more positive way. Perhaps what helped me the most was knowing that we came from the same cultural background - this allowed me to express myself easily and I knew instinctively that she understood where I was coming from when I spoke about certain matters. It has been an eye opening experience, and I am very grateful for it."
