What is Psychotherapy?
It can seem confusing when you feel in need of help to know what might be the most beneficial therapy for you.
What is the difference between counselling and psychotherapy? Counselling deals with more present issues whereas psychotherapy offers a deeper exploration of present problems linking to past events, patterns and relationships. Psychotherapy goes to the root of the problem for long term change and understanding rather short term symptom relief.
Psychotherapy can increase the client's awareness of their inner world with unconscious clues providing signposts to what lies deep within us. The therapist will work with the client to spot these clues providing a safe space to play with ideas.
Psychotherapy can help with the following issues:
- Low Self-Esteem
- Relationship problems
- Family issues
- Work related issues
- Suicidal feelings
