Psychotherapy and counselling are ways of alleviating psychological distress through talking.
Psychotherapists and counsellors work with their clients to try to understand their experiences and bring a sense of meaning and possible change to the client’s world. The aim of psychotherapy and counselling is to relieve symptoms, resolve problems and enable the client to cope better.
There are times when it might feel too difficult to talk to a partner, a member of your family or a friend. Psychotherapy or counselling is being able to talk to a professional who will listen and offer a non-judgemental, confidential environment with time to explore the various options which may enable you to resolve your issues.
