Psychotherapy and Counselling Techniques
The RENEW program is a holistic program developed in-house that goes beyond just providing temporary relief to any emotional issues you may suffer from. It involves applying the relevant psychotherapy techniques to recreate your inner beliefs; and filling your life with positive inertia stemming from your true self and unrealised potential.
EMDR is a therapeutic technique that is often used to treat people who have experienced trauma. It helps to address the causes of symptoms such as depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and mood swings. EMDR is one of the most effective techniques for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Schema therapy is used to identify life traps. In the safe environment of the counselling centre or through online therapy, the certified therapist will speak up to the perpetrators to give the victims a voice that they had lacked previously when they could not defend themselves. Schema therapy is often done via visualisation.
Mindfulness helps to condition the mind to experience calmness amid adversity. This method is proven to help the mind stay focused in the present moment rather than allowing the mind to ruminate freely into the past or future events that may fuel anxiety.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) attempts to understand your irrational thoughts and helps you reframe them to open channels of new thoughts and beliefs.
Exposure response prevention (ERP) is a type of behaviour therapy that intentionally and gradually exposes a person to uncomfortable situations. Through constant exposure, you would be able to face your fears and overcome them.
Psychotherapy Vs Counselling
While a therapist can deliver both counselling and psychotherapy, psychotherapy generally is a level above regular counselling. A psychotherapist is qualified to provide professional counselling services, but a counsellor may or may not possess the necessary skills to provide psychotherapy.
The term counselling is commonly used to describe a short therapy that focuses mostly on one’s behaviour. It typically targets a specific symptom or circumstance. A Singapore certified counsellor will offer guidance, support, and recommendations for the individual to better adjust to adversity or change.
On the other hand, psychotherapy is an in-depth treatment that focuses on gaining insight into the individual’s struggles. It is an extensive analysis of an individual’s attitudes, beliefs and behaviours that may have impacted their lives and relationships. Psychotherapy addresses the root causes of current struggles to facilitate personal growth.
In the words of Britt Frank, a trauma specialist and author, psychotherapists are the archaeologists of the human psyche. Simply put, it is the role of a psychotherapist to dig deep to discover the reason(s) for an individual’s struggles and adopt a range of techniques to address these issues. After all, symptoms of mental health disorders are all manifestations of unmet needs!
Here at Emotionally Great, our certified psychotherapist can provide you with exemplary counselling and therapy services both in-person or online. Located at the heart of Singapore, in Orchard Road, we are committed to helping you begin anew with our professional counselling in Singapore.

Generally, if something is interfering with your day-to-day life and causes you emotional distress, it may be time to consider seeking professional help. Some other signs include changes in sleeping habits, the use of unhealthy coping mechanisms, social withdrawal and a change in mood. However, therapy and professional counselling in Singapore can be beneficial for anyone, regardless of whether you have a documented mental health illness or not.
The number of sessions recommended for each individual varies based on the severity of the condition and treatment type. Typically, a majority of psychotherapy patients in Singapore report feeling better after approximately 3 to 4 months of seeing a certified counsellor. Some patients may prefer to continue their treatment long-term (for example, weekly sessions for a period of 6 months) to achieve their personal goals.

When attending professional counselling in Singapore, the main focus of the sessions is to provide relief and coping techniques to current issues. On the other hand, therapy focuses on the individual as a whole – their thoughts, behaviours and attitudes. It involves understanding the root causes of an individual’s issues and utilising therapeutic techniques to resolve past hurts. Here at Emotional Wellness, we adopt integrative counselling and psychotherapy techniques to help individuals be free of emotional distress.
Research by the American Psychological Association has found that about 75% of individuals who underwent psychotherapy sessions with a certified counsellor have shown significant benefits from it – including improvements to one’s emotions and positive behaviours. At Emotional Wellness, therapy is highly effective as our therapist is able to understand the root causes of your issues and is skilled in the appropriate use of the techniques to resolve those issues. After just a few sessions, you will be able to see a significant difference.
