Counseling is generally more directive than Therapy. You might be looking for “TOOLS” which are more generally associated with Counseling. Sometimes Couples work is spoken of as Couples Counseling for its focus on communication tools.
Sometimes and for some people the terms Therapy and Counseling are interchangeable.
The Gestalt Therapy part of what I do is not easily thought of as Counseling… and sometimes what is required is truly advice or counselling on how to act or what to do. The terminology can be confusing … and I do both.
