General Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling and psychotherapy can help with many everyday issues we face. The team at Sex Life Therapy also provide general counselling and psychotherapy for non-psychosexual issues.
What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms and are often sued interchangeably. Counselling is defined as a short-term process that encourages and assists people to change behaviour. Through counselling people identify issues (problems) and identify ways to take positive steps to resolve these issues.
Psychotherapy can be considered to be more long-term form of therapy. Psychotherapy identifies emotional issues and the background to these issues and problems. In psychotherapy people develop an understanding of their feelings, thoughts and actions more clearly. Psychotherapy can help with psychological problems which may have built up over a longer time.
In essence, counselling and psychotherapy are similar. The terms can, and do get used interchangeably. Some people start off in counselling and then progress to psychotherapy.
