Counseling & Psychotherapy
Counseling and Psychotherapy are general terms used to describe the process of working on problems or areas of stress with a trained practitioner. The relationship between client and therapist is an important aspect of treatment, as it is very important to establish trust and rapport in order to do the work. Generally it is through talking with the practitioner that a client gains insight into their difficulties, better understands their motivation, finds more appropriate ways of coping, and enacts changes in their thinking and behavior. Some types of psychotherapy and counseling utilize other forms of communication such as writing, drama, artwork, dreams, or music. Treatment can be short- or long-term, one-to-one, in pairs, or even groups.
