Counselling Psychology: Psychotherapy:
[I use the terms "counselling" and "therapy" interchangeably, and do not find the distinctions that others make between them very helpful. But it is still necessary to use these terms from time to time, and here I use the term "counselling psychology" to refer to a more practical and evidence-based emphasis, and "psychotherapy" to a more theoretical and reflective-based emphasis]
