Psychotherapy differs from counseling. Counseling is the giving of advice, direction and connection to resources. Psychotherapy is a particular way of talking about difficulties that can open up new personal insight leading to fundamental change. It utilizes specific, evidence- based modalities designed to achieve specific positive outcomes and have been validated by research.
Some modalities focus on cognitive restructuring, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). Other modalities focus on emotion regulation such as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Other modalities focus on Identity Transformation such as Narrative Therapy. Yet other modalities focus on deep understanding of one's psyche, such as Jungian Analysis, which includes Sandplay Therapy.
In my practice, I draw on all of those modalities, with a particular focus on Sandplay Therapy woven with Narrative Therapy.
Therapy can be an amazing life changing experience and greatly enhance one's daily living. It can lead to deep insights, change and growth. Here are some resources to assist with accessing this support:
