The difference with psychotherapy is that counselling focuss on the present moment and the conflict that the person brings in the here and now, often related with decision making or a relational conflict between others. On the other side, psychotherapy analyses the psychobiography of the individual from a historic perspective looking for the origin of the symptons or the disorder. These symptons or disorders would have a clinical entity to be treated with psychotherapy, when counselling has the aim to analyse and sort out a situation or conflict that, if it is true that is distressing for the person, it is not a sympton or disorder per se.
