Counselling psychology as a specialty assists with personal and interpersonal functioning across the human span from childhood to old age, focussing on social, emotional, vocational, educational, health-related, developmental, and organizational concerns.

By integrating theory, research and practice, along with a sensitivity to multicultural issues, counselling encompasses a wide range of practices that can help people improve their well-being, reduce or eliminate distress and maladjustment, solve personal and inter-personal crises and increase our ability to live more highly functioning lives.

Counselling psychology is a close relative of clinical psychology, it differs in a number of ways; a counselling psychologist will usually focus on less severe psychopathology (e.g., depression or anxiety) while a clinical psychologist may deal with more seriously disturbed people (e.g., schizophrenia or personality disorders).

A counselling psychologist will often follow a more humanistic or client-centred approach and lastly, counselling psychology is alone in that it attends both to normal developmental issues as well as the problems associated with physical, emotional, and mental disorders.

Despite the differences between counselling psychology and clinical psychology, the difference between the two fields are becoming increasingly blurred and many are suggesting that the fields should be combined.

People served by counselling psychologists include persons of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Examples of those people would include late adolescents or adults with career/educational concerns and children or adults facing severe personal difficulties.

Counselling can also be family oriented and of benefit to young children as well as couples.

Other areas where counsellors specialise include infertility, cancer or oncology, palliative medicine or social services. Counsellors will also provide grief, bereavement or loss counselling, gambling counselling, addiction counselling, couples or family counselling, counselling for relationship difficulties or counselling for significant life change events such as divorce counselling, job loss counselling, etc.
