COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY

Is mainly, though not exclusively, listening-and talking-based methods of addressing psychological and psychosomatic (mind-body) problems and change, including deep and prolonged human suffering, situational dilemmas, crises and developmental needs, and aspirations towards the realization of human potential.  In contrast to biomedical approaches (medical doctors), the psychological therapies operate largely without medication or other physical interventions and may be concerned not only with mental health but with spiritual, philosophical, social and other aspects of living.  Professional forms of counseling and psychotherapy are based on formal training which encompasses attention to pertinent theory, clinical and/or micro-skill development, the personal development/therapy of the trainee and supervised practice.  It is also complementary therapy and regarded as holistic/mind and body integrated.  Psychotherapy is most of the time integrated with other types of therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT), NLP, and hypnotherapy.
