This page will help you assess the types of psychological therapy which could help you resolve your emotional issues.
Put simply, counselling is a space for guided self-reflection. Whereas psychotherapy is focused on creating long-term, positive behavioural change. Counselling can be a useful way to think through difficulties. It can help you reflect on factors that may have brought you to this point. Counsellors tend not to give you advice or create strategies for you to cope. Rather, they reflect back what you are saying. This can help you see issues for yourself more clearly. And find your own ways to resolve them. Psychotherapy is a more structured, scientific psychological intervention that can create meaningful change. Therapy involves deeper work that gets to the root cause of your issues. Your therapist will work closely with you to help develop practical strategies to improve thoughts and behaviours. There are a number of different therapy models which are scientifically proven to improve wellbeing. For example, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). Or EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing). Different models are more suited to different symptoms. All therapy models are about creating positive change that helps you reach your goals in life.
Most counsellors have a qualification in a particular area. For example, grief counselling or substance abuse counselling. But not all counsellors are qualified. Technically anyone can call themselves a counsellor. So, if you decide to see a counsellor, do check their qualifications first. In contrast, psychotherapists are highly trained medical professionals. They will have a qualification in a specific type of therapy.
We provide a number of psychotherapy treatments at Kove for children, teenagers and adults. All of the types of therapy we offer include a component of counselling.
