Psychotherapy is generally a longer-term process that helps people resolve outstanding issues that may extend back to childhood or a previous developmental stage. Psychotherapy is often effective with more chronic emotional issues that may be experienced repeatedly throughout the life cycle. Although elements of counselling are involved in psychotherapy, there is more emphasis on understanding the inner emotional world that can sometimes be painful but liberating at the same time.
Brief counselling is generally short-term with a focus on issues that may be the result of a life transition, short-term crisis or psychological distress. Understanding and working with your emotional triggers can help you establish some equilibrium and feel more empowered to make the changes you desire. I work collaboratively to help you build realistic goals that are achievable and hopefully sustainable. Are you open to change?
