Whereas these two terms have often been used interchangeably, and have a lot in common, they are in fact different. The training in Psychotherapy qualifies ones to provide Psychotherapy and Counseling however, the opposite is the case. Counseling is brief and focuses mostly on single problems whereas Psychotherapy is longer and deeper. Psychotherapy uses a systemic framework where treatment outcomes are achieved by encompassing all influences of an individual from their family, employment, community, religion etc. It is provided by professionals trained to practice psychotherapy such as Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychologists, Social Workers or Psychiatrists.
