Counselling & Psychotherapy

CFEL provides both Counselling and Psychotherapy, aimed at assisting individuals to overcome personal challenges and include modalities such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Person-centered approaches, Trauma-oriented interventions etc. in order to improve mental health and wellbeing. While there are many similarities between Counselling and Psychotherapy, there also are marked differences.

Counselling typically focuses on the present and immediate concerns people may have, supporting them in difficult times and day to day issues. Counselling is not about giving advice, but can be helpful in cases such as life transitions, relationship problems, bereavement, stress management and many other issues. Counselling may also be useful in developing coping mechanisms, exploring options or making decisions.
Psychotherapy tends to delve deeper in order to find root causes of difficulties clients may experience and to promote personal growth. It is often used to address more complex issues such as depression, anxiety disorders, childhood trauma, personality disorders or addiction. The aim would be to process inner conflicts and subconscious issues, which will assist clients in gaining insight into the causes of emotional distress and findings new ways of coping. Such therapies may include hypo-psychotherapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, humanistic, integrative psychotherapy and others. Despite their differences, both counselling and psychotherapy are geared towards improving mental health and wellbeing. Counseling allows individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviours, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
