Psychotherapy (short-term and long-term)
This approach is best for people who are experiencing feelings which are distressing, intense or hard to bear. Others might have unusually powerful reactions to situations or events that are hard to make sense of. Psychotherapy attempts to try and understand the origin of troubling feelings by exploring past and present relationships and events including childhood experiences. This in turn helps people deal with current issues.
Generally shorter and less in-depth than psychotherapy. Helps with more immediate problems.
CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)
A problem-solving, collaborative practical approach that focuses on trying to change negative and unhelpful thought patterns, feelings and behaviour.
Difficulties between couples can often be more quickly addressed by seeing both members of the couple together.
