Counselling and Psychotherapy
There are several different types of psychotherapy. Although there are many different types, they all have one thing in common, they are all treatments based on talking to another person and sometimes doing things together.
People who see a psychotherapist are generally suffering from some kind of emotional or psychological issue that they are unable to resolve themselves (See list- some problems that can be helped with psychotherapy).
Counselling is a two way process, where the counsellor see’s the client in a private and confidential setting to examine a difficulty the client is having, it may be a loss of direction or dissatisfaction with life or a bereavement.
Counselling is a way of enabling choice or change or of reducing confusion. The client can explore various aspects of their life and feelings, talk openly without judgment releasing bottled up feelings. The counsellor will help the client deal with the issues and look at different options open to them and help them decide the best way forward.
This focuses on the feelings we have about other people, for example, our family, friends and people who are close to us. It involves discussing past experiences and how these have led to our present predicament. By releasing these thoughts, feelings and emotions, and the understanding gained from this dialogue, there is a sense of freedom for the person to make choices about what happens in the future.
As the title indicates, the emphasis is on looking at a person’s behaviour and changing it. Behavioural Psychotherapy relies on the premise that a client can be helped to overcome fears by spending more and more time in the situation they fear or by learning ways of reducing their anxiety. Various methods are used such as keeping a log or diary to practice new skills and exercises between sessions.
Again the main emphasis is on changing a persons thinking patterns, similar in some way to psychodynamic psychotherapy it encourages discussion of how we think, this helps the client to rid destructive ways of thinking. It does not focus predominantly on the past, more on the present and future.
People’s problems will often not be theirs alone, but are often the result of relationship problems, maybe problems in marriage, partnership or even family. In order to resolve these relationship issues, clear focus is needed on the relationships involved and involving the people concerned in order to help those relationships to work better.
Psychotherapy usually involves regular meetings at the same time and place; it can be weekly or fortnightly. Usually the length of each treatment can be agreed between client and therapist within several weeks of starting.
In individual psychotherapy a client and a therapist talk together in a quiet room, usually for fifty minutes or so. In couple counselling, a therapist will meet with the couple so that they can work on their problem jointly.
Some problems that can be helped with Psychotherapy:
Those seeking psychotherapy for different and specific reasons can be grouped into four categories.
Distressing symptoms – anxiety,
- depression, or unrealistic fears (
Inability to think rationally (thought disorder)
