Counselling usually explores an immediate issue such as a family or relationship conflict. It is often short-term and not as thorough or extensive as Psychotherapy, which further explores the client's thought processes and way of being in the world. The skills and tools of Counselling and Psychotherapy can overlap or become integrated according to the client's needs. A client may be suffering from depression or anxiety after being made unemployed. Counselling may explore this as one or two specific issues. Psychotherapy may further explore the client's overall well being and functioning on a deeper level especially if underlying or related issues become more
apparent as well.
