Penney Hames Counselling

Tackling life’s struggles through understanding and connection

About psychotherapy and counselling

In practice there is little difference between psychotherapy and counselling. Both can help with a wide range of concerns, no matter how long you have been struggling with them. What is different is the level of training – training to be a counsellor takes less time than training to be a psychotherapist. I’m a psychotherapist. But I use the term counsellor because it’s the one that most people use.

The perspective I bring to our conversations is based on my training, my years of clinical experience talking with hundreds of people, and my direct experience of talking with you during our sessions.
