This is one of those questions that will get you a different answer from every different person you ask. These terms are often used interchangeably, and in BC, people tend to use "counselling" more often. In my mind, counselling tends to be more short-term, and more solutions-oriented. Psychotherapy involves looking deeper, and exploring more of the origins of your patterns, beliefs and behaviours. Both are valuable. I use both terms to describe my work. Some issues can be resolved through more of a counselling approach, and some require deeper digging.
