Psychotherapy is a type of talking therapy, and like counselling, provides a space where you can work through problems and life issues with a trained professional.
Psychotherapy often works deeper than counselling, and can help you change deep-rooted patterns that may be limiting the way you live your life.
Your psychotherapist will ask about the problems you are bringing to therapy, the changes you are looking for, and why you think you are getting stuck.
They will help you unpack your story, so you understand how and why certain patterns and problems are present in your life. This will open up opportunities to manage situations in a new and healthier way.
What issues can I bring to psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a space where you can work through challenging patterns, stressful relationships and compulsive behaviours that are limiting your life in some way.
What are psychotherapy sessions like?
The relationship you develop with your therapist is the most important factor that can determine a successful outcome in psychotherapy. That is why we ask all new psychotherapy clients to attend a Free 30 Minute Session to meet their psychotherapist.
This way you get a sense of how they can support you, and visit our practice to see if the psychotherapy space feels comfortable, before you make an informed decision to move ahead with sessions.
- Sessions are 50-minutes in length
- Weekly therapy commitment
- Short-term focused, or medium to long-term in length
- You will agree the length and focus of your sessions
- Focused outcomes for change
You will be encouraged to talk about your problems or issues, express your emotions as you experience them, and develop an awareness to notice the thoughts you have. Your psychotherapist will listen to you carefully, reflect back what they have heard, challenge you when necessary, ask questions to help you explore things further and show empathy for your feelings and experience.
Psychotherapy will support you in rebalancing how you see and understand things, how you process and regulate your feelings, and how you act and behave in your daily life. Many people experience greater self-confidence, a calmer headspace, more contentment and happiness, and greater ease in making positive choices for their life.
