What is psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is a type of therapy used to treat emotional problems & mental health conditions.

It involves talking to a trained psychotherapist, either one-to-one, in a group or with your wife, husband or partner. Therapy allows you to look deeper into your problems & worries to work through the challenges you are facing.

One of the key objectives of psychotherapy is to help you gain a better understanding of the issues that are troubling you. Therapy can help you work out new ways of approaching situations that you find difficult, as well as suggesting new methods to help you cope.

Why go to a therapist?

People come to therapy to get help. The impetus for therapy is as unique & diverse as the individuals who seek it, but typically people come to find assistance they haven’t found in other areas of their life.

Depending on the issue & type of therapy, this help may come in the form of support, information, guidance, self-knowledge and/or the space to learn & practice new tools.

Developing a trusting relationship with your psychotherapist is very important & will help you be able to talk about long-standing problems. However, this can take time.

Sessions may be scheduled more frequently if there is a crisis. As you progress the sessions may become fortnightly or monthly.
