Counselling is where you learn that there are  various options that a person can take in approaching a problem. Sometimes under  great pressure it is hard to see  or think clearly. With the help of a counsellor you can “put the cards on the table” and   make a decision by learning  to  choose which  option is reasonable or suitable for you.



Hypnosis is a technique used to focus your attention to a single point  of concentration, generally under a relaxed state of mind.   This   may  not  always be the case.  In a hypnotic state of mind an old pattern of thinking can be broken to facilitate change. While hypnosis is not equated to normal sleep,   it  gives you the perceptual experience of between sleep and not sleep. It is , in this case,  a relaxed state of mind. The main role for hypnosis is to help people to change their old behaviour to new ones if  they are  suggestible. For example they can quit smoking, reduce or stop  an  alcohol drinking habit.  Other uses of hypnosis is to help confidence building   in order to  relieve anxieties for exam preparation or public speaking  and others.


Psychotherapy simply means working through  your problems through talking,  feeling and emotionally experiencing your fears and  anxieties  which may have stemmed from previous experiences  in your life.   What is important is that  you learn to make connections between your feelings and thoughts in an appropriate manner of behaviour.  Through life, inevitably , we are conditioned to think and  feel  as perceived by our significant others and others in  society.  As a result our personality is based on  how  others perceive ourselves.  Thus  we  may distort our perceptions  about ourselves and  the world around us. In psychotherapy we are able to examine  our own feelings and  thoughts and have informed  opinions about ourselves in relation to  others.



Psychodynamic therapy is an important tool for assessing our own unconscious conflicts in our daily lives. The dynamics of our psychological reactions to and perceptions of the world around us are usually derived from early family interactions. As we respond individually to situations, one member of the family may become compliant and another may become rebellious and still another may become detached or independent in response to similar circumstances.  In psychodynamic therapy the understanding of our intrapersonal and interpersonal dynamics can be unravelled to improve communications.



Psychoanalytic therapy offers a very deep and meaningful insight to our unconscious wishes, desires and motivations of our behaviour.  More often than not we tend to blame others or objects for the negative emotions in us.Often  this therapy  is referred as an insight therapy. The unconscious forces may become active in the therapeutic sessions in order to be highlighted by the therapist to the client by using appropriate interpretations. This “mirror like” process facilitates the opportunity for the client to see himself or herself.  Personality problems with recurrent or obsessive patterns of thoughts and behaviour which may have some traumatic origin fit into this category of therapy. It requires a long term work and commitment from both client and therapist. The aim is for the client to have “a mind of his/her own” and sees himself/herself as emotionally secure to cope with the world as it is.
