Psychotherapy is similar to counselling in that it involves an interactive process between a practitioner and individual. However, psychotherapy is used to address patterns in behaviour or thinking which underlie current or reoccurring issues. Patterns can show up in ways of thinking, behaviours, emotions, interactions with others, or dynamics in relationships. Psychotherapy is delivered to clients in ways which is designed to address the underlying causes of the presenting issues.
As an example, cognitive-behaviour therapy is often used in psychotherapy to target unhelpful patterns of thinking which underlie a behavioural issue, such as over-reacting. Whilst there are differences, the aim of counselling and psychotherapy are the same in that a practitioner will work with you to create change and bring about positive outcomes for you.
Counselling is a process which allows individuals to focus on specific issues relating to their current situation. Individuals often turn to counselling when they are are at an impasse and are not sure which way to proceed. An effective counsellor enables individuals to grow through gaining insight, resolving personal issues, or making effective decisions.
The role of the counsellor is not to make decisions or resolve issues for you, but to offer guidance and support so that you can discover appropriate solutions to issues and your own ways to bring about positive change.
Keystone Counselling and Coordination is a small business, located in Mayfield and servicing the Newcastle Region.
