Counselling Psychology

What is Counselling Psychology?

Counselling psychology is a recognised approach within the field of psychology which deals with a a wide range of mental health problems concerning life issues including:

  • anxiety
  • bereavement
  • depression
  • domestic violence
  • eating disorders
  • obsessions and compulsions
  • personality issues
  • relationship difficulties
  • sexual abuse
  • and trauma

A Counselling Psychologist integrates psychological theory and research with therapeutic practice.  To use the title of Counselling Psychologist, a practitioner completes a degree in Psychology, followed by post-graduate training, usually to doctoral level.  This level of training and experience enables the Psychologist to work with individuals, couples or groups to develop a thorough, shared understanding of their life-circumstances and living environment.  Based on this understanding, the goals for working together can be agreed.

By considering a person's complete environment and all related factors, a Counselling Psychologist will draw on a wide range of treatments and resources and work with the client to improve quality of life, for instance, by designing a healthy life "path" suited to the individual or couple.
