TonicTalk Counselling & Psychotherapy Site Logo

Introduction
On this page we hope to outline and describe both the purpose and functioning of this site. The purpose of this site is to promote mental and emotional wellbeing through the provision of quality Therapeutic Services in the form of ‘Talking Therapies’ and to inform the public as to the nature of and differences between the varying schools of ‘Talking Therapies’. This site is without doubt an ongoing work in progress; therefore please excuse its short comings. In the near future we hope to be able to provide for all your therapeutic needs in one place.

Web Site
This site is designed not only to provide and promote our therapeutic services but also be an online resource for information concerning all types of “Talking Therapies”; Counselling and Therapy. Our intention is to make available ‘unbiased’ information concerning therapies to help people make informed decisions concerning their own health and where they seek help.

Counselling and Therapy are two generic terms used to describe two branches of ‘Talking Therapies’. Generally, ‘Counselling’ applies to Humanistic style talking therapies and ‘Therapy’ applies to Psychoanalytic styles. Laypeople, (non therapists), tend to use these terms interchangeably and to maintain ease of use of this site we shall do the same when referring in general terms to any of the ‘Talking Therapeutic’ models. Otherwise we will refer to them by their specific names, e.g. Psychoanalysis, Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, Person Centred, Gestalt, Transpersonal, Integrative and so on. Also, we will refer to all types of practitioners as ‘Therapists’ regardless of the therapeutic model they practice.

Sadly, writing the material for a website and maintaining it is a time consuming task and therefore not all pages are available. Please bear with us if what you seek is absent and if urgent please contact us and we will do our best to remedy the situation. Otherwise, please look around and feel free to visit us again.
