What is Counselling? What is Psychotherapy?
People wonder what counselling and psychotherapy are about, and what the difference is. Well it’s simple really; counselling is about talking through a particular issue in order to gain clarity about thoughts and feelings, while psychotherapy focuses a little more deeply on the limiting beliefs that are “programming” us outside of our awareness and holding us back.
The thought of this can be very frightening; we all have feelings and/or memories that are painful, and we fear being overwhelmed by them. However it’s a bit like peeling an onion – we look at things a little layer at a time, to the extent that you want to. So you are always in control, and every little insight is helpful in some way. The mind has a great wisdom of its own, and knows if and when to look at what is kept unconscious. Gaining insight can be a great release, and when we change our thoughts we can change our whole life.
