What is Counselling?

The terms Counselling and Psychotherapy are often used interchangeably.

Though they have a lot of similarities there are important distinctions between the two:

Counselling is generally a more short term course of treatment that centres on the present, working with behaviour patterns and problem solving. It’s a collaborative process and builds on individual strengths and skills already present

Psychotherapy focuses on working longer-term to build insight around emotional difficulties, how they originated and how they can be made manageable. It involves exploring the past, how it’s impacting on the present and hopes for the future

There are many types of psychotherapy and counselling, but research shows the success of therapy depends above all on the connection between client and therapist. Choosing the right counsellor (who feels right to you) is the key to a successful counselling or psychotherapy experience.

I can incorporate counselling and psychotherapy into your sessions as appropriate. My integrative training and over fifteen years’ experience have given me the skills to construct a bespoke therapy that will suit you and can adjust to changing needs.

I am also qualified and experienced at providing clinical supervision to counsellors in Woking, Guildford and Camberley areas
