Psychotherapy & Counselling, are they the same?
Psychotherapy and counselling are the same, they are talking therapies.
But psychotherapy may challenge you to look at past events in your life and understand them.
Crisis Point specialises in psychotherapy and counselling approaches that can help you deal with and overcome the emotional pain arising from trauma.
Psychotherapy/Counselling and You
We can help you move forward, into a well adjusted and productive lifestyle. Crisis Point operates a safe managed way of working that helps you understand the issues that may have affected your life and caused pain or stress.
Crisis Point’ s psychotherapists & counsellors are trained to help.
What happens when you your first session?
On accessing our service, you will be offered an assessment counselling session. This session helps you and the therapeutic counsellor decide the best course of therapy to adopt. It also serves as an introduction for you on what services the charity has to offer you. It will enable you to feel ready to enter into therapy or not. Once you have decided to receive therapy, a weekly appointment schedule is organised with a trained therapeutic counsellor. You will visit the centre each week to work in 50-minute sessions on the issues that are causing you emotional and psychological difficulty.

In time, with our help, you will be able to look at your experiences as part of you. Who you are and how you act. No one can change your past, your past is part of you. Psychotherapy will help you turn the negative feelings and emotions into positive feelings and emotions. As you progress through your therapy, you may find hidden inner strengths and qualities within yourself that you have always had but did not acknowledge.
You hold the key that unlocks the door to your own undiscovered potential.
