What is Counselling?
Counselling is usually a short term experience, focusing on your specific issues or problems which are currently troubling you. Personal and Relationship Counselling is a chance to talk over what is on your mind with an objective person who can help you learn new skills and ways of looking at situations which enable you to be more capable of solving both those current problems and those in the future.

What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a relationship you share with another in order to understand the deep complexities of what is at work inside of you.
Psychotherapy teaches you to face the biggest frontier- the journey within yourself. It has been estimated that each week around half a million Australians visit counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists and spiritual directors.
The number is clearly increasing as one seeks solutions for the rising gamut of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual disorders manifesting in the symptoms of life.
There are very few who aren't troubled about something these days.
You enter the psychotherapist's space when your life seems difficult, and it goes without saying this is an act of courage. In the privacy of a sanctuary built upon trust, honesty and respect, you learn to face yourself. Your unconscious conflicts, hurts, wounds, struggles, sufferings, beliefs and behaviours.
Psychotherapy is an art, an act, a rite of passage. It is often a path of discipline, self-responsibility and liberation. It can also be a path of soul and sacredness. Psychotherapy is the art of knowing yourself!
