Therapies

There are overlaps between each form of therapy. It can be difficult to distinguish between Counselling, Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, but we offer this as a guide:

Counselling

Once a week. Provides a space for thinking about emotional difficulties.  There is more focus on the present and difficulties on everyday life

Psychotherapy

Twice to three times a week sessions. More focus on linking past and present experiences. Deeper exploration of unconscious factors behind emotional difficulties. British Psychoanalytic Council

Psychoanalysis

Four to five times a week sessions. Most intensive form of treatment. Enables depth of understanding and the possibility of more far reaching change.
Institute of Psychoanalysis

Psychiatry

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine which focuses on our minds, emotions and relationships. In this way it attempts to combine medical diagnosis and treatment with a psychological understanding of the individual.
Royal College of Psychiatrists
