Counselling Psychology Current Theories

Counselling Psychology is a specific field of psychology that focuses on a wide variety of mental health issues. Although counselling psychologists mainly deal with clients suffering from depression, anxiety, family or social problems, or vocational problems, counselling psychologists are also trained to treat mental problems that would be considered more severe such as schizophrenia. Counselling psychologists differ from other branches in psychology because of their approach to mental illness. They focus on wellness and strengths of individuals rather than mental deficiencies. Counselling psychology was developed using many of the techniques and theories of other psychologists. Psychometrics, or psychological testing, was also an important factor in the history of counselling psychology. The current theories include psychodynamic Therapy & other therapies, psychotherapy Theories, cognitive approaches, behavioural approaches, affective approaches in Counselling psychology.
