Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. Counsellors and psychotherapists will work with you over a period of time to help you develop a better understanding of yourself and of others. The most common way of receiving therapy is where you and your therapist are alone together in the same room, but you can also receive individual therapy by telephone or online.
CBT aims to help you change the way you think (cognitive) and what you do (behaviour). Rather than looking at past causes, it focuses on current problems and practical solutions. CBT can be helpful for depression, anxiety, stress, phobias, eating disorders and managing long term conditions.
Unlike CBT, the goal of ACT is not to reduce the frequency or severity of unpleasant internal experiences. The goal is to reduce your struggle to do away with these experiences and increase involvement in meaningful life activities. ACT is sometimes referred to as a “third wave” or “new wave” psychotherapy.
Emotionally focused therapy is a structure-tested way with scientific basis and theory and it is an approach for working with couples, families and individuals that helps to create secure, resilient relationships. EFT works on an emotional level to evoke and shape potent new experiences. Counsellors will help you understand your own and others’ emotions, address any insecurities and conflicts, and learn to interact in a more responsive and emotionally connected way. It moves them into new behaviours and new ways of engaging their world.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can be helpful if you’re feeling painful emotions or facing difficult decisions, if you want to improve or change your relationships, or if you’d like to develop a better understanding of yourself or others.
Counselling and psychotherapy are not only helpful for people with Mental challenges or emotionally distress, they also build your resilience, confident and self-awareness. Many tools and skills are beneficial for self- development, career and marriage. If you are feeling dissatisfied with life in general or seeking balance in your life, these therapies would be able to help you.
The Therapists can offer a safe and confidential space to help you explore emotional problems and thoughts to resolve emotional distress and make sense of your world. So you can have a better understanding of yourself and others, improve your ability to relate to others and live a happier and fulfilling life that you deserve.
