What is Psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is an intervention that allows safe exploration of worries, behaviours, and thoughts that leave you feeling anxious, confused or upset. Over a number of sessions, and at your own pace, you are invited to share the way you feel about other people, yourself or particular situations. The therapist will be your trusted companion who will guide you as you explore the sources of your issues. Depending on your goals, it may be necessary to go beyond the initial problem and identify any underlying causes so you can permanently resolve both immediate and long-term issues. The trust you build with your therapist is based on their non-judgemental attitude, and will empower you to reflect on fundamental questions related to your situation. Your therapist will encourage you to uncover how you are really feeling and to identify specific ways of thinking, as well as behavioural patterns, when coping with difficulties.
Psychotherapy London - There are many schools of psychotherapy in London, each placing emphasis on different areas of a person's mental state. Having been trained in the most effective psychotherapy modalities, the type of therapy I will recommend to you will depend on the unique issues you are currently dealing with.Therapy sessions typically take place at my London psychotherapy practice at least once a week for several months, or longer. The length of the treatment will depend on the severity of the problem. If you have long-standing or complicated issues, longer-term interventions tend to have better permanent outcomes in comparison to shorter-term treatments.
