Counselling & Psychotherapy

Job Loss Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counsellors and psychotherapists tend to work with you face to face, through discussion, to explore your personal issues and problems in depth. The focus is on working towards an increase in your understanding and to help you to develop greater self-awareness.

  • Counselling aims to lead you to make your own decisions and then act to make changes in your life. Counsellors normally meet with you regularly and over a period of time dependent upon the issues raised.
  • Counselling is more regulated than coaching. Counsellors should have attained counselling qualifications before offering their services. There are codes of conduct for counsellors and clear guidelines available.
  • Psychotherapy is provided by qualified practitioners through a professional relationship within which clients can profitably explore difficult, and often painful, emotions and experiences.
  • These may include feelings of anxiety, depression, trauma, or perhaps the loss of meaning of one's life. It is a process which seeks to help the person to be more able to make choices, and become more autonomous and self determined.
  • Psychotherapy may be provided for individuals or children, couples, families and groups.
  • You can explore this area more thoroughly by going to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy . You can find job loss counsellors local to you in our regional tool .
