Definition of Counselling and Psychotherapy

The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) define the practice as follows:

Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long-term to help them bring about effective change and/or enhance their well-being’

The main principle of counselling is to help the client see things more clearly and enable them to focus on feelings, experiences or behaviour, with a goal to facilitating positive change

The success of the process is built on trust between the counsellor and client and confidentiality

My approach is one built on a person centered approach and with some use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) if necessary to support clients through times of challenges and change
