Psychotherapy & Counselling
There are many ways to describe psychotherapy and counselling. Often referred to as 'talking therapy', psychotherapy centres on discussions between therapist and client. These conversations will explore the way you see yourself and others. Thoughts and feelings can be hard to identify alone, With the help of a therapist you can discover what these are and begin to free yourself from situations you believe need to change.
Psychotherapy and Counselling
You can bring to the session whatever is on your mind - feelings, thoughts, memories, dreams. As your relationship with the therapist develops, you will discover new insights and find different ways of coping with problems and feelings. The first sessions will establish the focus of what you would like to work on and the context of your relationships with others.
Treatment will involve an exploration of alternative ways to deal with the problems identified and provide a renewed focus for pursuing your life goals. Changing can take time and effort, but is also a rewarding and exciting experience.
