Counselling and psychotherapy aims to reduce distress and support clients to live more fulfilling, authentic lives. Often we are unable to share difficult issues with others. We may want to protect family and friends who, in turn, may feel a pressure to ‘solve’ our problems for us. The therapeutic relationship creates a safe, boundaried environment where clients can choose – in their own way – to express innermost thoughts and feelings in confidence, knowing they will be heard with empathy and without judgement. The practice provides talking therapies, offered by qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who specialise in a range of issues from workplace difficulties to loss, bereavement and long term illness to eating disorders. Our therapists work with young people and adults using a variety of skills and approaches such as mindfulness based therapy, creative work, Gestalt and cognitive behavioural therapy. We can provide short term focussed therapy as well as long term counselling. All of our counsellors and psychotherapists at our Guildford, Surrey clinic counsellers are registered members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. Main differences between Counselling and Psychotherapy Generally speaking, counselling explores more specific issues and life events whilst psychotherapy addresses deeper issues, in particular early childhood experiences and how these have led to patterns of relating in adult life. How Counselling and Psychotherapy works Counsellors and Psychotherapists vary in their theoretical approach; some may focus on a single approach, others may draw on a range of theories. Your counseller in the Surrey area will be happy to talk to you about their personal approach. “In studies of treatment conducted over the last 40 years, 80% of clients in counselling and psychotherapy end up better off than those who didn’t seek help.” 1 “There is evidence that therapy continues to work long after the therapy has actually ceased.” 2 Helen Baker and Sally Hughes are our practitioners specialising in this therapy.
