Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a general term used to describe the process of treating psychological and emotional problems. Psychotherapy is a powerful way of helping people obtain important insights around the issues they experience. Psychotherapy can help people take the steps they need towards resolving the problems they have been struggling with, and can help them bring about positive and lasting change in their lives.

There are many kinds of psychotherapies and there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach. A wide range of techniques and strategies can be used to help people deal effectively with the issue they want help with, depending on the approach of the therapist.

Potential benefits of psychotherapy:

  • Increased resilience in dealing with life stressors
  • Increased self-confidence and feelings of self-worth.
  • Development of skills for improving relationships
  • Relief from emotional problems (for example, depression, anxiety, phobias, eating, disorders)
  • Increased self-awareness and an increased ability to understand yourself and your personal values and goals.
  • Eliminating old unwanted habits (e.g. overeating) and creating new, more desirable ones.
