What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a professional, safe space for people to explore their own struggles and invest in their emotional and psychological wellbeing. Everybody experiences hardship at various times in their life. Often people will try to solve their own difficulties by themselves. If these efforts have not worked, then people usually seek out a professional therapist for a period of time.
People may book a few sessions to talk over some personal difficulties in their life and apply some strategies they may not have thought of before. Often people do Counselling & Therapy for a block of time ranging from 3 months to 12 months. These blocks offer more time to address the issues, hardships & heartaches presented. These blocks also allow the necessary integration and resourcing a person can apply into their life. Counselling and Psychotherapy offers people a confidential, safe place where they can he heard, understood, resourced and apply a wide range of strategies to areas such as their personal life, relationships, family, social & work life.
