What is the difference between Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy and counselling are similar processes, psychotherapy being a longer and more in depth one. Sometimes, in coping with life's early challenges and trauma, unconscious habits or patterns of behaviour have been formed, leading to the development of a character style which is helpful to resolve the early situation, but ultimately blocks progress in life.
