What to Expect

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what matter regarding your childhood and/or adulthood you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

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

Psychoanalytic Therapy

Psychoanalytic therapy concentrates on the unconscious causes of the issues you encounter. It fosters your consciousness of some of your unconscious. An objective of psychoanalytic therapy is for you to attain personal insight and use it if you wish to.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious meaning of the issues you encounter. It facilitates you in being aware of parts of your inner dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-understanding to give you options.

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

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your ideas, feelings and significant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover suitable methods of coping.
