COUNSELLING & THERAPY

In online, telephone and face to face sessions, people are assured of regular attention and practical guidance as they come to know and appreciate themselves more deeply and express themselves and their aspirations more fully and constructively in their relationships and work.

Work may be purely verbal or involve various activities as appropriate.
Psychotherapy and counselling are terms used for much the same work. Some who call themselves counsellors tend more towards education and coaching as they work with clients.
Psychotherapists may tend to deal more with healing and recovery from earlier traumas or difficulties arising from earlier life situations. Both emphases have an important place in assisting development of people's abilities to live more fully and effectively and constructively with others.
Many studies have shown that the most important factor for effective work is the ability and personality of the therapist or counsellor rather than the particular method applied by them.
