Counselling is a non-judgemental relationship with another. The freedom found in the space which opens up can aid someone to begin speaking and exploring aspects of their lives they may not have considered applicable to their current distress before. Counselling differs from psychotherapy in duration and is most often short term and focusing on current difficulties. Sessions tend to be once a week for approximately forty to fifty minutes and a longer term Psychotherapy or Psychoanalysis may follow on from this.
