Counselling / Psychotherapy is Suitable for?


Helps people identify problems and crises and encourages them to take positive steps to resolve these issues. It is the best course of therapeutic treatment for anyone who already has an understanding of wellbeing, and who is also able to resolve problems. Counselling is a short-term process that encourages the change of behaviour.



Helps people with psychological problems that have built up over the course of a long period of time. It will help you understand your feelings, thoughts and actions more clearly. Psychotherapy is a longer-term process of treatment that identifies emotional issues and the background to problems and difficulties.


Counselling and Psychotherapy can help all sorts of people in lots of different situations. You may also hear them referred to as psychological therapies. Counselling and Psychotherapy work just as well whether you are old or young, male or female, black or white, gay or straight, rich or poor. Your educational background makes no difference either. They are for anyone who is going through a bad time or has emotional problems they can’t sort out on their own.
