Counselling is generally more directive than Psychotherapy. You might be looking for “TOOLS” which are more generally associated with Counselling. Sometimes Couples work is spoken of as Couples Counselling for its focus on communication tools.
Sometimes and for some people the terms Psychotherapy and Counselling are interchangeable.
The Gestalt Therapy part of what I do is not easily thought of as Counselling… and sometimes what is required is truly advice or counselling on how to act or what to do. The terminology can be confusing … and I do both.
