Counsellors provide you with a safe and non-judgemental environment for you to work through life’s challenges. They do this using a variety of methodologies including the fundamental favourite such as cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic and person-centred counselling, as well as more creative and holistic methods such as sand tray therapy, art therapy and dream therapy. Counsellors can help with a range of behavioural and emotional issues and empower you to make positive change in your life.
A psychologist is someone who studies the mind and behavior. When many people hear the term “psychologist,” they immediately think of a professional jotting down notes as a client recounts childhood stories. While many psychologists do perform this type of talk therapy, the profession also encompasses a wide range of specialty areas including emotional issues, thinking and behaviour, anxiety, depression, childhood behaviour disorders and addictive behaviours.
