Psychotherapy is sometimes referred to as talking therapy, a therapy session is rather like a meaningful chat. It provides a person with the opportunity to express their thoughts, difficult emotions and feelings in a safe non-judgmental space, and in doing so gives the person greater insight towards their own responses.

Psychotherapy aims to enable clients, to understand and express their feelings, to help change attitudes, behaviour and habits that may be unhelpful; and to promote more constructive and adaptive ways of coping. Clients begin to recognise what makes them feel positive, anxious, or depressed and this can equip them to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way.

All Psychotherapists attend ongoing supervision, they do not to give advice but to help the person to understand their situation and feelings better towards resolving their own solutions to their satisfaction.

Psychotherapy can provide help with a range of problems including but not limited to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, family /relationship issues, mal-adaptive coping mechanisms such as addiction. Anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by their problems and unable to cope may be able to benefit from psychotherapy.

For someone who is not familiar with the use of Psychotherapy, it can be very daunting to seek and accept it. Psychotherapists are very conscious of this when commencing work with a new client. Some people, for example, like to attend counselling in a very private space, such as a different town, while others have no issue attending counselling in their local village. Successful psychotherapy depends on a supportive, comfortable relationship with a trusted therapist.

Each session is held in strict confidence and prior to any session commencing there are some formalities that have to be addressed. So, the first session is normally focused on what the counselling will entail and what the boundaries are. This can help towards a more relaxed atmosphere before launching into specific issues.
