What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a way of working with people, usually through sessions with a highly skilled psychotherapist. It can be undertaken as one to one, groups or couples.
There are many reasons people seek psychotherapy, for some it’s to resolve repeated patterns of behaviour with which they are unhappy e.g always choosing the wrong partner, for others it’s to look at behaviours, beliefs, thoughts or feelings that are posing problems in everyday life or simply those who seek to improve well-being and mental health.
Relationships and social skills are often a key focus of the work of a psychotherapist. Psychotherapists believe this is due to the human need for attachment and belonging. It appears to be one of our deepest yearnings, yet often this yearning can become distorted through life experiences and an adaptation to a world that can sometimes be hard.
Therapy allows the individual to experience empathy, unconditional acceptance and genuineness in a safe, confidential and secure space, in this space client and therapist can explore right to the root of the issue.
There are a variety of reasons people seek to come to therapy, some are facing issues, some want to become a better person others want self development. Here are some of the issues I can help you with but please see the Services page for a more exhaustive list.
As we come out of Lock down I am seeing more people whose relationship is under greater pressure due to both being at home, financial worries, anxiety about the changes that are happening in the world around them to name but a few. Others are seeking help due to the loss of a loved one, individuals are feeling isolated and having time to face fears that busy lives help supress. All of these things are things that therapy can help with.
