What Is Counseling and Therapy?

A counselor listens to a person in therapy

Therapy, also called psychotherapy or counseling, is the process of meeting with a therapist to resolve problematic behaviors, beliefs, feelings, relationship issues, and/or somatic responses (sensations in the body). Beginning therapy can be a big step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible—no matter what challenges you may be facing. Through therapy, you can change self-destructive behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings, improve your relationships, and more.

  • A Western Cape third wave can still be delayed, health officials have said.
  • The province is currently experiencing a resurgence in Covid-19 cases.
  • Health authorities claim the resurgence is being driven by social gatherings.

While the Western Cape is facing a resurgence of cases, the province may still be able to hold off a third wave if public behaviour drastically changes.

The increase in cases have been linked to social gatherings, said provincial health department head Dr Keith Cloete, during Premier Alan Winde’s weekly Covid-19 digi-conference on Thursday.

The Western Cape is currently teetering between the second and third wave, Cloete said.
