Counselling vs. Psychotherapy
The terms counselling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably, however both have some inherent differences. Counselling is often focused on a specific problem or set of problems, and is typically a shorter process. Psychotherapy is often a deeper process of examining and treating difficulties in mood, personality, or adjustment that draws from a wide variety of tools and techniques. Psychotherapy is also a term that is protected under legislation and indicates that the therapist has obtained more advanced training.
All services are offered in the form of individual and/or couples therapy. I have over 15 years experience and draw from a wide variety of techniques and strategies that have been proven to be effective, such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
