What is the difference between psychotherapy and counselling?
Counselling is generally short-term work, lasting from six weeks to several months and tends to focus on specific issues such as bereavement, depression, infertility, anxiety, bullying, a relationship difficulty or sexuality problems. Counselling can be long term.
Psychotherapy is generally long term work and open-ended. The length of time is very individual, varying from months up to years. In psychotherapy, issues are explored on a deeper level. This can be anything from an interest in self-exploration and personal growth to specific, long running problems such as a mental health issue, relationship difficulties, abuse, sexual identity, etc. With addictions, we would look at the underlying reasons as well as strategies and support systems that can help people break free, the one premise being that they actually want to stop.
