Counselling & Therapy


Counselling  is focused on helping individuals with their emotional and psychological issues. Counselling usually involves  guidance and support in managing challenges such as stress, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, and more.

The aim of counselling is to help clients explore their thoughts and feelings, gain new perspectives, and develop coping skills to deal with their problems. Counselling is often short-term and focused on specific issues.


Therapy may include counselling, but it can also involve other techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoanalytic therapy, family therapy, and more. Therapy can be short-term or long-term, depending on the individual's needs and the type of therapy used. The aim of therapy is to help individuals understand and manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in a more constructive way.

What's the difference between Counselling and Therapy ?

While Counselling and Therapy are words that are often used interchangeably, there is a difference.

 One main difference is the scope of practice. Counselling is typically focused on short-term problem-solving, while therapy can be more long-term and focused on deeper issues. Therapy may also involve a more structured approach, such as CBT, whereas counselling may be more open-ended.

However, both counselling and therapy share the common goal of helping individuals improve their mental health and well-being. Both involve a collaborative relationship between the practitioner and the client, where the client's needs and goals are at the forefront of the treatment. Both also involve a range of evidence-based techniques and interventions to help individuals overcome their challenges and improve their overall quality of life.
