Psychotherapy involves exploring your feelings, beliefs and thoughts, including those from childhood, to come to a fuller understanding of the problems you face. Given the often sensitive nature of the issues discussed, developing a trusting relationship with the psychotherapist is paramount to effective treatment.

Psychotherapy aims to help clients gain insight into their difficulties or distress, establish a greater understanding of their emotions and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping in their thinking and behaviour.

Although there are different types of psychotherapy, each relies on communications as the basic tool for bringing about change in a person’s feelings and behaviour.

Psychotherapists are trained to relate to and treat people who are distressed-We work to alleviate personal suffering and encourage change.
