What Is Counselling/Psychotherapy And Who Is It For?
It is commonly believed that Counselling and Psychotherapy provide different services and people can be left wondering which service best suits their needs. Well, according to the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP), there is no research evidence to support a practical differentiation between the two types of interventions.
In order to provide a helpful guide in choosing whether Counselling/Psychotherapy is beneficial for you, IACP have described both services as follows:
“Counselling/Psychotherapy is for anybody. It can be of great support in times of crisis or
change. Both counselling and psychotherapy involve the provision of professional assistance to people who are experiencing personal issues, in order to help alleviate those difficulties. Counselling tends to deal more with immediate issues that may have arisen more recently e.g. bereavement or relationship breakdown. Psychotherapy tends to deal with deeper, more long-term issues that may be rooted in the past e.g. a trauma, or, serious mistreatment where the effects of such are ongoing. Counselling and psychotherapy are terms that overlap heavily and are often used interchangeably. They incorporate the giving of attention and respect in a confidential relationship. It provides an opportunity to explore, discover and clarify ways of living more resourcefully towards greater well-being. Stress, Anxiety, Bereavement, Addiction and Relationship issues are some of the reasons why people engage the services of a Counsellor/Psychotherapist.”
