What is the difference between Psychotherapy and Counselling?
The key difference between the two courses of therapeutic communication treatment lies in the recommended time required to see benefits. Counselling usually refers to a brief treatment that centres around behaviour patterns. Psychotherapy focuses on working with clients for a longer-term and draws from insight into emotional problems and difficulties.

Why do people go to therapy and how do I know if it is right for me?
In short, people seeking counselling /psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes.
What is therapy like?
