Abstract

The article seeks to differentiate counselling and psychotherapy so that users can distinguish between different kinds of service provision. Roles, functions, qualifications, training, areas of competence, distinctive focus and professional organisations are specifically defined for counsellors and psychotherapists. The article similarly but more briefly describes the “core professions”: psychiatrist, psychologist; clinical, occupational and counselling psychologists. Emphasis is placed on areas in common and the value of counselling.
