Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is used to explore emotional problems, looking at the deeper meanings of an individual’s experiences. I view Psychotherapy as open ended work, supported by a therapist trained in this specific form of therapy. I like to use the analogy of having a wound to describe Psychotherapy: whilst counselling may attend to the wound and put a plaster on it, Psychotherapy will allow us to take a deeper look into the wound, explore what may have caused it and how best to ensure that you are able to look after yourself going forward. As individuals, we are constantly going through personal shifts and changes which means that the goal of therapy may change over time too. Despite this, it may give you comfort and reassurance to have long term support for your own ongoing personal development.
