Counselling, Psychotherapy and Therapy.
I am trained as a counsellor and psychotherapist and I also use the term therapist. I understand that there can be confusion about these different words and what they mean. The professional body of which I am a member, The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy [BACP], does not distinguish between these terms and says:
We use the word ‘therapy’ to cover talking therapies, such as counselling, psychotherapy and coaching, and ‘therapist’ to include ‘counsellor’ and ‘psychotherapist’.
