WHAT IS PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELLING?
Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques focusing on experiential relationship building, communication and behaviour modification. This often includes alleviation of distress, an increase in individual sense of well being and reduction of subjective discomforting experiences. All these are designed to improve the mental health of a client, or to improve group relationships.
