Psychotherapy literally means to nurse the soul deriving its name from the ancient Greeks understanding of human nature and the psyche. Psychotherapy occurs when a therapist meets with a client in a private and confidential setting to explore any difficulties the client is having or the distress he or she may be experiencing, a general dissatisfaction with life where an explanation is not readily known, a loss of a sense of direction or purpose. It is a common misconception that only individuals who experience mental health problems require psychotherapy. In fact Psychotherapy is of great value to anyone.
At some point in their lives, most people will suffer from some form of anxiety or depression which could lead them to seek counselling. Anxiety and depression are signs that either we do not understand the full meaning of something which has or is happening to us, or that we are finding it hard to understand why we feel or act the way we do as a result.
Psychotherapy will help you unlock understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to give you a sense of wellbeing and personal agency. Take that leap today, dare to get to know yourself.
